TP-LINK AC600 Wireless Dual Band Adapter - shoud it work in ArchBang

In  Hardware & Multimedia » PCI WirelessCard discussion  scjet wrote:" ... I personally find  TP-Link -(based on the very well supported Atheros chipset) is also good ... "
This was the only discussion I found about TP-LINK.

I have TP-LINK AC600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter but can not notice the wifi-network I have at my summer cottage. It excists becouse my mobile phone uses it.

By googling I found that "Support Windows XP/7/8/8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit)/Linux/Mac OS X 10.7-10.11" so even Linux.

In short: Give me some advice how to start, please. Do I need some tools installed "sudo packman -S  xxxx" etc. to see the list of wi-fi's.

This is the classic Arch catch 22.

To easily install something from AUR, you need an AUR helper which is only found in the AUR.

You can find an easy way to install packer here
http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=5682

But you might have to adjust it for dates.  It's really worth understanding what is going on in the background here too.  Essentially, you're grabbing source code, compiling it and then installing.
There's also a packer install script somewhere in the ISO and it's always a good idea to read it to see what's going on

Make sure you load base-devel before you start the journey of package building

sudo pacman -S base-devel --needed # you may need other packages such as git depending of what you are building

Enter a selection (default=all):

To understand a bit better what is happening here I do not push enter giving the answer "all".
What of the figures 1 to 25 do I need?

I appreciate your help in these matters!

Re: TP-LINK AC600 Wireless Dual Band Adapter - shoud it work in ArchBang

base-devel is a meta package comprising of all the packages you need to compile software.  The only reason not to select 'all' is if you have an alternate version of one of the listed packages and you don't want to overwrite it.  In this case, you're safe to select 'all'
