The first suggestions I tried were the ones that didn't entail installing a new app, though ultimately a free download was the fastest and simplest solution. I started by disabling remote mode, as recommended by “argraff.” Unfortunately, the adapter stayed silent. “PasterEdB” advised me to add a command to my kernel boot-up options. This might have worked, if I wasn't such a Linux “noob” that I couldn't find the options in question (yes, I'd appreciate someone instructing me how to do so, and thank you in advance).
