I use the wifi adaptor, Edimax AC1200, and its driver can be downloaded from 'http://www.edimax.com.tw/edimax/download/download/data/edimax/tw/download/for_home/wireless_adapters/wireless_adapters_ac1200_dual-band/ew-7822ulc'.

I fail to compile its GPL Source Code on CentOS 7.4.

Where to get its rpm drivers, or how to compile its GPL Source Code?
