The Edimax driver EW-7833UAC_Linux_Driver_4.3.21 linked to on the right works with Ubuntu 16.04 Kernel 4.4.0-116 if you add the Netgear device ID.

Add the line {USB_DEVICE(0x0846, 0x9054),.driver_info = RTL8814A}, /* Netgear - A7000 */ to the CONFIG_RTL8814A section in <driver source folder>/os_dep/linux/usb_intf.c.

It's line 213 in the version mentioned above.

Then make, and sudo make install as described in the readme.
