Hey folks. I'm fairly new to using linux so bare with me please. I installed Linux and I realized that my external wi-fi adapter isn't being recognized. I used lsusb (with root) and it lists there. How can I get linux to recognize my wi-fi adapter? my Adapter is the Netgear A6200.

The fastest and easiest way to get that one working is as follows:
1.) Unplug the USB WiFi adapter.
2.) Open a console session.
3.) Elevate to root
4.) Issue the following series of commands:
Code:
git clone https:/ /github.com/jurobystricky/Netgear-A6210
cd Netgear-A6210
make
make install
exit
exit
5.) Plug adapter back in.
6.) Search for available connections.

Delete the extra space between slashes.

Oh....if you do not already have git installed, you would need to first execute
Code:
apt-get update ; apt-get install git
or use whatever method for software installation that your particular distro supports.
