Ubuntu: I bought Alfa AWUS036NHR v2 wireless adapter but couldn't install the drive


Yes, but I still could not install the driver that I download from the official web to the Ubuntu system It's a source code document and I couldn't do ./configure after I tried to use the command: make it gives me error: implicit declaration of function ‘daemonize’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]


I suspect that you tried to install a different driver because your device won’t connect. However, this circa-2011 driver won’t compile in any recent Ubuntu version.

I suspect that the required driver is already included in all recent Ubuntu versions. You can check from the terminal:

lsmod | grep rtl  

If you find that both rtl8192cu and rtl8xxxu are loaded, then blacklist one:

sudo -i  echo "blacklist rtl8192cu"  >>  /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf  exit  

You will probably also need a change to Network Manager:

sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf  

Add a new section as follows:

[device]  wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no  

Proofread carefully, save and close the text editor.

After making these changes, reboot and let us hear the result.
