Hello there!

I'm new to linux lite and have just installed it today. I have a Netgear Wireless USB Adapter AC6150 but I can't seem to find the driver for it. Would appreciate some help / direction.

Thanks!

Sorry, not sure if I was being too vague in my previous post.

I have a desktop that doesn't have in-built wifi so I went and bought a usb wifi adapter. The problem is that because it's a usb adapter, linux lite can't seem to detect it when it's plugged in. When this machine was running on Windows, I could install it using the driver that came supplied in the CD. However, I can't seem to find the driver for linux lite, even .

Any help would be fantastic...

Thanks!

If you are buying new hardware for Linux, I would definitely ask first. You'll want to have something that you can just plug and play. Take that adapter back to the shop and get a Panda Wireless adapter online.
