Hi,

 

I just got a TpLink Archer T2U Plus, the one with the big antenna. Works well on windows without any installataion, however I couldn't get it working on my Linux Ubuntu 19.10. with Kernel 5.3.0-24-generic system.

Is there any official or unofficial driver which I can use for Linux (not just Ubuntu but Raspbian as well)?

I would really appreciate your input.

@Kevin_Z  Thank you for your reply.

 

Meanwhile, I asked the same question at AskUbuntu and received the solution for this problem.

Since the T2u Plus has a Realtek rtl8812au Wifi chip, it's easy to install a driver for it.

 

Whoever has the same issue with his T2U Plus Wifi dongle please see the solution HERE or check the instructions below.

 

 

Installation on Ubuntu 19.10 with kernel 5.3:

Open the terminal and execute the following commands :
 

sudo apt install git dkms
git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git
cd rtl8812au
sudo ./dkms-install.sh

 

 

Oh yes, you need an internet connection to install the driver, so use a cable or something.

I don't know why, but I had to reboot the computer twice to make the dongle work in Ubuntu, but after that it works perfectly now!

 

Thank you AskUbuntu guys for the help!

Hello, sorry to tell you that the Archer T2U Plus is not advertised to support Linux.

 

As you can see, there is no official driver for Linux. You can search for a suitable driver online or from Github to give it a shot if you already have it.

Good day.

" sudo apt install git dkms

git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git

cd rtl8812au

sudo ./dkms-install.sh "

i can confirm that the above methode works on manjaro for raspberry pi4.

i had to install dkms first:

sudo pacman -S dkms

then:

git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git

cd rtl8812au

sudo ./dkms-install.sh
