Hi I have a wifi router AC1200 and I would like to know if I can use it to install Ubuntu on my PC.Is it possible? In my router it says that it's only compatible with MACOS.
If not what can I do?
 


That ,if memory serves me, is a TPlink wireless router! Provided it is working, connected to the Internet. And powered up, there should not be a problem [however hard-wire from router to machine is better] the connection will depend on the wi-fi chip/dongle in use. At this stage I guess it will be a Realtek rtlr81** series for which you will indeed to download and install the correct drive , once you know the exact chipset number [and suffix] you will need either a teatherd mobile or hard-wire to router to install the drivers,

This is meaningless. A router works with anything that uses compatible communication protocols and since those are standardized it would not matter if you had a MAC, Windows, Linux or Carrier pigeons (assuming they knew tcp/ip).

Your router is fine you just had marketing people write up the papers and box and they knew nothing.

Bottom line is your router is fine, no need to change
 
@Brickwizard all that i Have îs the router i don't Have drivers for IT.
routers do not need drivers. they are a self contained component that you connect to.

DRIVERS ARE NOT NECESSARY FOR ANY ROUTER TO USE

Provided it is suitable for your isp and Unless someone has been inside the router and messed with the set-up, then as @APTI has said it will work fine you will only need drivers for your WI-fi dongle/onboard chipset, which as i have already said you May need another internet connection to download and install then
