i bought the usb wifi adapter TL-WN821N V5 and i want to make it work on ubuntu 16.04 64 bit.
ifconfig and iwconfig doesnt show wireless NIC.
ubuntu doesnt seem to recognize the usb and the green led on the usb is off. lsusb output:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2357:0107
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021 VirtualBox USB Tablet
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


so i downloaded the driver from http://www.tp-link.com/en/download/TL-WN821N.html#Driver
and run sudo make in order to compile it but this is the output:

"******************************************"
"NO SKRC,we will use default KSRC"
"******************************************"
make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/4.4.0-31-generic/build M=/home/test/Downloads/TL-WN821N(EU)_V5_160315_Linux/Driver modules
/bin/sh: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
Makefile:1696: recipe for target 'modules' failed
make: *** [modules] Error 2


i am new to linux and ubuntu. what do i need to do to make this work?
btw the ubuntu is in vm but i configured it that the usb is connected directly to the vm.
thanks for help!

I have no Ubuntu at hand, but you might try the following:

Rename both folders TL-WN821N(EU)_V5_160315_Linux and Driver modules in your Downloads folder to something like TL-WN821N and Driver_modules.

Then re-run make using this command:

make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/4.4.0-31-generic/build M=/home/test/Downloads/TL-WN821N/Driver_modules

The characters '(', ')' and space are special to the shell. They cause a syntax error if not quoted. You can use those characters in filenames, but they will complicate handling, so it's best to avoid them at all. And welcome to Linux!
