SOLVED: So it turns out the particular wifi adapter I have requires this https://github.com/diederikdehaas/rtl8812AU/tree/driver-4.3.22-beta repository. The google search pointed me at the wrong repository and I spent all this time spinning m wheels trying to figure this out. But really all I needed from the beginning was the -right- driver. Any Netgear a6100 users, this is the one that worked for me.

.......


The way that nm-applet appears is when you left click on its tray icon a list of both my wifi adapter and my ethernet adapter appear as wired connections. I'm sorta stumped. If you guys need any more info please let me know.

I have no idea what the actual differences between these drivers are, but during my troubleshooting I found them and tried them all with the same results.

Still stumped on this one. Anyone here familiar with NetworkManager? I kinda need to have a working wifi configuration.

Even if you don't know of what is wrong, does anyone know any troubleshooting steps I can take? What can I do to figure out what is wrong?

Does it get connected? What is output of ifconfig -a and of ls -al /sys/class/net/?

No it doesn't connect. nm-applet seems to think it's a ethernet adapter. It doesn't even list available SSIDs.
