AWUS036ACH USB Wifi Adapter Install

Post by komputec » 2019/04/01 21:40:40

I'm new to CentOS; so, I may be missing something obvious.

I have a AWUS036ACH USB Wifi adapter that was not recognized by the OS during install. I have a driver CD, with linux drivers. I copied, and unwrapped, the tar file for this adapter to my hard drive, but I do not know which file is the driver to try and install.

Following directions, I previously installed this adapter with Kali linux, but I didn't have to use the CD. I do not see the install filename used with Kali files from my CD.

I'm temporarily using a different USB wifi dongle for internet access; so, it may show in any requests for information. lsusb shows the target adapter as: "Bus 003 Device 003: ID 0bda:8812 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac 2T2R DB WLAN Adapter".

Wifi adapter information is located here: " ... al-Band/66"
