Description:
According to https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WNDA3100v3,
  • WNDA3100v1 uses an Atheros chipset (and works, according to https://h-node.org/wifi/view/en/1205)
  • WNDA3100v2 uses a Broadcom chipset
  • WNDA3100v3 (this entry) uses a MediaTek chipset
There is source code for a Linux driver at https://github.com/jurobystricky/Netgear-A6210; however it has no commits since 2017 and may not even be free software: its README file says it is derived from MediaTek source code and some of the files say things like "All rights reserved. Ralink's source code is an unpublished work and the use of a copyright notice does not imply otherwise." sudo lsusb -v
