Review of Linux Compatibility
The Edimax EW-7822UAC is a USB WiFi stick, which supports wireless connections according to IEEE standard 802.11ac. The adapter bases on the Realtek RTL8812AU chipset and has the USB ID 7392:a822:
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 7392:a822 Edimax Technology Co., Ltd
Until now no driver for the EW-7822UAC is included in the standard Linux kernel. However, Edimax provides a Linux driver for this adapter (EW-7822UAC_linux_v4.2.2_7502.20130517.tar.gz), which has to be compiled from source per hand.
Alternatively, on can use a Open-Source Linux driver from https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux by downloading the ZIP file which is available on the linked page. The downloaded file can be compiled by:
cd Downloads/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master make sudo make install sudo modprobe 8812au
The compilied kernel modul 8812au.ko will be used automatically for the stick after reboot.
