Installing drivers for Linksys Wireless WUSB6300 Adapter on Ubuntu 20.04

I am trying to get the drivers for this working on my mom’s computer, I have followed every tutorial that I have found and nothing has worked properly. Can someone please help me out? I am using Ubuntu version 20.04. I was recommended to try this Common method for installing Linksys ac1200 usb wireless router ineffective

I get this But the / commands and the many restarts has no results, i get an infinite loop of it telling me to restart

Please report this error.
You will need to run the following before reattempting installation.
$ sudo ./

>Solution :

I regret to learn that the recommended git repository has very recently been superceded. Here is the new method:

git clone
cd 88x2bu-20210702
sudo ./


NOTE: Since you refer in your previous question to another attempted driver installation, I assume that the prerequisites git, dkms, build-essential and linux-headers are already installed.
