Hi Compumind,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum!

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

Hi @JeremyB,

I have been really busy for awhile so just found your question. Yes, I am using the rtl8812au-dkms package for this usb wifi adapter: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5 dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS .
It is very automatic using Synaptic Package Manager. For me this works very well. The price was good, too.

Sincerely,

Marcia
