#1

I was running my OS off a USB stick fine and the wifi was working. I installed it to my SSD and setup again but now the WIFI adaptor isn’t working.

I followed the first time Having problems seeing my wifi Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 and it worked but since installing onto the SSD and doing the same its not working.

No wlan0 interface found

Ive also tried

sudo apt purge rtl8812au-dkms
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au.git
sudo cp -r rtl8812au  /usr/src/rtl8812au-4.2.2
sudo dkms add -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms build -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms install -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2

Any advise? I think from trying to fix it ive been making it worse.

Fixed.

I wiped the SSD and put the image on again.

Then straight away did

sudo apt purge rtl8812au-dkms
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au.git
sudo cp -r rtl8812au  /usr/src/rtl8812au-4.2.2
sudo dkms add -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms build -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms install -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2

Rebooted and its working.
