Model: Archer T4U
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have bought

https://www.tp-link.com/au/home-networking/adapter/archer-t4u/

 

I want to run it on a Ubuntu 18.04 system. Various sites list it as having a RTL8812 chipset. TP Link does not say anything about it.

I tried to install all driver versions I found and none worked. Somebody mentioned that it may not be the RTL8812 chipse.

Vendor=2357 (TP Link)

ProdID 0(x)115 not found in the online database.

 

What is the chipset the product uses?

Anybody knows of a driver that will work with it on Ubuntu 18.04 kernel version 5.0.0-36-generic

The Archer T4U has the official driver for Linux (kernel 2.6.18 ~ 4.11).

https://www.tp-link.com/support/download/archer-t4u/#Driver

 

What is the hardware version of the Archer T4U? The chipset may varies due to the different hardware version.

https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/46/

 

For Archer T4U V1/V2, it is Realtek RTL8812AU. You can search online to get a suitable driver, like from Github or the chipset manufacturer's website.

 

May it help.

If I can suggest two things:

1) TPLink should list the chipset on the device datasheet. I originally thought it was 8812au (previous versions)

2) The driver on the TPLink web site can be updated from the repository I used once the pull request is merged.

 

good luck!
