I recently acquired a USB wireless device that I am trying to get working under Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The device in question is based on the 8812 realtek chip.

I started by installing the rtl8812au-dkms package from the standard repositories. While the driver works, the system is not stable using this driver. I began searching for new, more updated drivers. There seems to be quite the plethora of drivers available, mostly on github.

My question is how do I go about deciding which of these drivers to download and install? Based upon my searches, two of the more popular choices seem to be drivers from users gordboy and aircrack. Neither instill a lot of confidence, especially the latter, that they are legit and not tampered with.

Downloading random software from random websites is an activity that I've often tried to avoid over the years. Thus, how do I choose the correct driver? Any help, thoughts, or insight would be greatly appreciated!
