A7000 Wireless Adapter and Linux

Post by johslsd » Wed May 23, 2018 7:53 pm

I recently decided to try out linux out of curiosity, and downloaded the latest version of Mint. I have a netgear a7000 wireless adapter, but it does not connect to the INTERNET when I am using linux, and no amount of searching else where has helped me so far. I have downloaded supposed drivers that will apparently work for my product from the wikidev page, but I can't seem to find out how to make it all work. Apologies for being a huge noob.

Please try installing kernel version 4.15.x and 4.4.x , reboot after every install and test.

Code: Select all

 uname -r
gives the kernel version you are running.
