Can anyone teach me how to install drivers for the modem to TL-WN822N? I bought hardware that supports both MAC and Linux, and Windows But, the instruction they offer out of the box - I can't understand at all (((( I'm a very, very new user, accustomed to graphical driver installers (on Windows, Mac)
I will give you all the necessary links and information, I hope I can get help from you, because I have no network, I need a way to send it offline
But, I have access to Windows, I can download all the necessary things from it, and then drop it into that system
Drivers that come in all distributions are not suitable (that is, those drivers that come by default, for some reason, do not allow you to connect to the network)
I tried arch distributions, ubuntu, and others - in none of them I could connect to the network, even your distribution could not connect to the network (on all distributions it catches the signal very badly, about 5%, but on Windows the signal is 80-90 % catches)
If you want a quick way to temporarily use wifi without a working wifi adapter and have a smartphone that's already connected to your wifi, then just plug usb cable between phone and pc and enable usb tethering on phone. Bodhi will connect to network thru it automatically, no config needed.
I don't understand what you're saying about 5%. If the driver isn't installed, it won't be listed in network manager, so no percentage at all.
That pdf with directions you linked assumes you have downloaded and extracted the driver source code already. If you want to use their method, first open terminology and change to the directory that contains that source code you downloaded.
cd tplink # this is a guess of directory name and everything after # is ignored so dont need to type itThen paste this command to make the driver and check what it's named:
make && ls *.ko # this will list all files that end with .ko after its done compilingNow you can install the driver file you just made.sudo insmod 88x2bu.ko # change 88x2bu.ko to whatever filename was listed from previous command.
Then probably need to:
gcc install skipped cuz it comes with bodhi (but wont hurt if you do it)
make clean skipped cuz thats only needed if you have old build already (but wont hurt if you do it)
it showed two methods to install, I chose the second cuz only one command (the other probably works too, try it if insmod doesnt work)
the rest unneeded cuz bodhi's network manager will allow you to do the network config once driver is installed
Seems their driver isn't going to work as they describe, unless you're a C programmer and wanna figure out why it isnt compiling, debug that implicit definition stuff.
The instructions implied it worked worked ubuntu 16, so I would suspect there's a better solution already.
As a step sideways, when you installed bodhi, did you select the box to install proprietary drivers? Have you tried putting your machine on the network (with lan cable or smartphone)? If so that'll make it easier to resolve this, run `ubuntu-drivers list` once you got network connection, see if it thinks there's a better driver available and if so `sudo ubuntu-drivers install`
