hey /g/. Got an ultra vanilla user here. Was just given my first ever PC, and issues with resetting windows have resulted in me installing Ubuntu.
I have a DWA-130 d-link USB N300 WIFI adapter that seems to pick up the connection around the computer once it's plugged in, however trying to join a network results in a disconnected message.

I've done some googling and I found some sudo commands that were supposed to work but I'm pretty sure I fucked with the firmware folder too much so I've reboot Ubuntu again and im trying to start fresh. Not wanting a recall of last time, im consulting what I deem to be the most industrious corner of the internet

Tl;Dr need help getting dwa-130 USB WIFI adapter to work on Ubuntu

Any and all help is appreciated, not sure what to contribute in the meantime

What commands? What have you tried?
>>
Hook up via Ethernet for now, I think there is a driver updater in the settings somewhere. Linux Mint is more friendly by the way.
>>
>>52349436
Tried this to no avail.
And there were some others which I can't seem.to find in my history. But regardless I have reinstalled Ubuntu so I am.at factory settings because I figured starting from.scratch would be easiest

>>52349436
Also this

Not partial to Ubuntu so maybe I'll give it a look. Also thought about cracking windows, but I thought I would give this my all first. Would mint have support for my d link?

>>52349540
tried http://askubuntu.com/a/564739 ?

how about burn a few copies of newb friendly distro live cd's, see which one works with your wifi adapter out-of-the-box, and install that distro.
Get used to linux, find out how said distro got dwa-130 working. http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Devices/USB/?dbw.devices.submit=filter&dbw.devices.filter0=[all]&dbw.devices.filter1=D-Link&dbw.devices.filter3=[all]&dbw.devices.filter4=[all] says it works.
then sudo rm -rf /

>>52349615
Isn't that the incorrect firmware for my adapter? In the reading I've done the dwa-130 needs the r8192u driver where those commands are.for the r2800 aren't they
>>
>>52349615
The list that >>52349647 posted said 2800 so I will try this out !
>>
it worked! thanks guys.
