WiFi USB Adapter Drivers (OSX/Mac, Linux, and Windows)

After purchasing a Wireless Dual Band adapter from Amazon and trying to use it on my Mac, I ran into the issue of having no CD drive to get the drivers onto my 2015 Macbook Pro. Thankfully, the seller was quick to respond and provide a digital file with the relevant drivers.

These drivers were provided to me specifically for this product:
1200Mbps USB Wifi Adapter YOTECE Wireless Dual Band (2.4G/300Mbps+5G/867Mbps) Network wifi 3.0 Antenna Dongle Adapter for WIN 7 /8 / 8.1 /10 Mac OS X 10.7-10.12.4

They will work with Realtek based USB wifi adapters – which is most of the devices on the market.

A note for linux users: More recent versions of Linux (Linux 18, Ubuntu 16) may have trouble using the provided driver. For Ubuntu users, the set of commands below has lead others to successful use of the adapter. Other linux users, please share your successes or problems with the driver.
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

You should have luck using the attached drivers for any of the following devices with 150Mbps,300Mbps, 600Mbps, 900Mbps. Both 2.4 & 5GHz and AC300, AC600, AC900, AC1200+. 802.11ac / 802.11b / 802.11g / 802.11c devices should be good.
