Installing USB Wifi Driver without Internet


#1

Due to my circumstances, I can only operate my machine through a USB-Wifi Adapter. I’ve purchased TP-link TL-WN725N. Some have told me it works out of the box but this hasn’t been the case for me, so I believe I need to install the driver as outlined here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1047832/tp-link-tl-wn725n-driver-for-18-04-version

My problem is I cannot run these commands without a pre-existing internet connection. I cannot forge a temporary Ethernet connection to communicate these commands.

I was wondering if there was a tool that would allow me to make these inputs to my HiveOS flash drive through my Windows 10 laptop. Alternatively, if there is a custom HiveOS build that comes with this driver pre-installed. Any help is very much appreciated, thank you :slight_smile:
