lsusb relevant output Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0bda:8812 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter Upon plugging the device it is recognized by lsusb, however when I go to wireless settings no adapter is recognized. The driver is installed (by going to software and updates -> addition drivers and selecting the open source driver).

With a temporary working internet connection by ethernet, tethering or whatever means possible, open a terminal and do:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au.git
sudo cp -r rtl8812au  /usr/src/rtl8812au-4.2.2
sudo dkms add -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms build -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms install -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2

Reboot and tell us if the wireless is working.
