Linksys WUSB6300 Wireless Dongle[SOLVED]
« on: January 31, 2020, 08:35:20 am »
Trying to get this to work.  I've Googled and tried everything I could find, but most of the "solutions" were over 10 years old and don't seem to work today.  Any help would be appreciated.  I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the network forum..it's here for now.

Thanks for the reply @spence.

Does the dongle need to be plugged in before running the lsusb command?  I'm new to Linux, so I need some hand holding.  :)

Yes.. needs to be plugged in... to see if your machine is able to connect with it if my memory serves me...

This must be @PCNetSpec's way of kicking my arse, and laughing, from beyond the grave... for we have the same driver for our wireless dongle... give me a minute to sort thru my posts...

 :D

Are you able to connect this device to the www via an ethernet cord?

Hi alan, how's it going  :)?   For future reference, could you please remember to encapsulate terminal outputs with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  If you're using either the Chromium Browser or Google Chrome, don't combine the functions.  Only use one or the other per output  ;).  These functions preserve the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  Use the Preview button to see how it'll look in the forum.  This time, I've done it for you - many thanks  ;).
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!
For my system info please L/click HERE.

Assuming you are connected to the internet via an ethernet cable follow the instructions in the 9th post in this thread, then let us know how you got along:

https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,5018.0.html

In Future: Remember to use the forum search feature in the menu bar as many questions have already been solved. I used it to to turn up all related posts to the  RTL8812AU driver...

If you end up solving your issue, please remember to edit your OP (Original Post) and append [SOLVED] at the end of the Subject: to let other future users know we found a solution

Thanks.

Yes, I'm connected via ethernet now.  I tried the search, but I searched for WUSB6300.  I'll check out the thread you linked to.

Thanks again.  We'll see how it goes.

Winnere, winner, chicken dinner.  Bingo.  It worked.  Thank you so much.  Hopefully it will stick after reboots and such.

Glad it worked @alan, and thank you for remembering to mark it [SOLVED]... The RTL8812AU driver will hold on thru reboots, but kernel updates often require a short little jig... plug it back into www via ethernet and then

Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove --purge rtl8812au-dkms
sudo apt install rtl8812au-dkms
sudo modprobe 8812au

you might also bookmark these two threads for future reference
