Netgear usb ac1900 wireless card not recocognized in mint linux 19 new install

I just installed Mint Linux 19. I cannot get my usb network card to work.
its a Netgear AC1900.

Linux does not seem to recognize the usb device. It works fine in windooze, so I know the card and the usb port both work.

Has anyone else had issues with this card or have a fix for this wireless card?

Thanks in advance for your help

OK. Standard Procedure:
  1. Google 'netgear ac 1900 linux module'
That Got_Me_This_Page

It appears you're in for a compile. Grab that driver, make the change they suggest. You may also need your kernel source; if the first driver compile pukes, it's best usually to copy the config (stored as /boot/config-<kernel_version>) into your kernel top source dir as .config. Then hit 'make' and grab a beer while it completes. THEN compile your module. You'll need root privileges for many things here. Just use sudo.
