[Note] 802.11ac 2.4G/5G USB adapter for Ubuntu

Not many AC wifi USB adapters are for Linux.  This one is:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08BYBL2TQ/


 

Good price, $19.97 (as of today, 2020-Nov).  

Relatively easy to use.  Read some comments and found how to install it on Linux:

  1. git clone this, https://github.com/RinCat/RTL88x2BU-Linux-Driver
  2. make
  3. sudo make install
  4. sudo vi /etc/modules, and add "88x2bu" if not added already
  5. sudo modprobe 88x2bu or reboot
