Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0846:9052 NetGear, Inc.

led me to.

and this led to..

Which shows your device 0846:9052 NetGear
has the rtl8812au chip
and finally the chilli555 fix can be found,,
Please first do..

Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential
Then go here ..

From the site just above:

Please check here: https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux On the right hand side, click 'Download ZIP.' Assuming downloads go to your Downloads folder, open the folder, right-click the zip file and select 'Extract Here.' Open a terminal and do:

cd Downloads/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 8812au
 
It 'makes' with a couple of warnings on my 13.10 system, but no errors. I can test no further since I haven't the device. This is a rather new device and we'll be very interested in your report.
Whenever a later kernel version, also known as linux image is installed by Update Manager, after you reboot, you will need to re-compile the driver:

cd Downloads/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master
make clean
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 8812au
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From Linux mint site:
 
The 8811au should be supported but the source code might be old, try

sudo apt install git dkms
git clone https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux.git
cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
sudo make -f Makefile.dkms install
 
Reboot
