Have you also been following this guide in the wiki?

The forum thread you reference is from 2016 and says

    Something interesting, support for this device will be in the 4.9
    kernel using the rtl8xxxu driver, then you won't need any external
    drivers anymore

It's not clear what parts you have done from that thread, and whether
you'd be better off ignoring it and following the wiki.

Cheers, Ralph.
