I have a WiFi adaptor of different company which is supported for windows and macos but no support for Linux/Ubuntu. So it gives me a lot of problems beacause i can’t make it run in my desktop and always need to use USB tethering but finally i solved the problem and thanks to the google search now I can use WiFi in my Desktop.
So the process for it first I search the google with the keyword “realtek wireless adaptor 802.11n driver for Linux” and voila i got all the results.But you first need to check that the WiFi adaptor is recognised by your computer.Like the below picture.
Now if it is true then you can go and there some variant of drivers available for the wifi adapters so you need to check.In my case the driver rtl8188fu worked fine and supported.But in your case it may be different.
So after googling I got a forum link of linuxmint

You need to establish temporary internet by other means for this. Also, you need to have disabled Secure Boot in the BIOS of your computer.
Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window) and copy/paste the commands into the terminal.
After that I go to the github and get the required commands in aterminal.And all set after a reboot.commands are:
