I'm new to ubuntu and linux. I recently installed elementary OS a few months ago on my Dell N4050 laptop. It has a built-in wireless adapter which is working fine. I then bought a TP LINK WN822N Wireless USB Adapter but for some reason I can't get it to work.
I have tried the steps mentioned here
sudo apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git cd rtlwifi_new make sudo make install sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtl8192cu-dkms
However, the steps above did not work for me. I tried going to Settings > Network but did not see another WIFI adapter.
I also tried downloading the drivers from TP Link site here and downloaded this driver. I followed the PDF installation guide included but I get an error during sudo make. I don't have the exact error right now as I'm not at home but I can add it here later.
I also tried installing the Driver Manager of Linux Mint to see if it can install the driver. However, it did not work as well.
Appreciate any help on this.
I found this link and will give it a try later. Will post updates.
I tried the steps in the link above. Every step succeeded but it seems that the wireless adapter is still not detected even after reboot.

Recently found out that I'm using TL-WN822N v4 and it seems that it might not yet be supported.
Hopefully drivers will come up in the future.
