Has anyone got an 802.11ac adapter working in Linux/Ubuntu? PCI or USB. Looks like the a6200 might be having issues. And according to wikidev, it's the only released piece of client hardware for 802.11ac.

I saw your post two weeks ago. I did some research and found one online.

I can confirm that edimax EW-7822UAC provide Linux driver. I successfully compiled its driver and connected it in Fedora 19. The download speed can reach average 15MB/s and peak 20MB/s by using perf.

This is the output of iwconfig and lsusb:
