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 or check the instructions below.

***UPDATE 09.08.2021***

 

Installation on Ubuntu 20.04 or Linux Mint 20.2:

Open the terminal and execute the following commands :

 

1. Update the package information :

sudo apt update

 

2. Install dkms and git :

sudo apt install dkms git

 

3. Install Build Dependencies :

sudo apt install build-essential libelf-dev linux-headers-$(uname -r)

 

4. Download the Driver files using git :

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

   

5. Navigate to the Downloaded directory :

   

cd rtl8812au

   

6. Install the Driver

sudo make dkms_install

if the installation is aborted , execute this command '''sudo dkms remove 8812au/5.6.4.2_35491.20191025 --all''' , if errors pop up '''Usage: remove / --all'''

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

@abhi36 Hi, is your Kali a live cd or it's installed? if it's a live cd, it may ask for restart and you will loose the driver.

Anyway, here are the commands to install the arcer adapter:

 

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y

sudo apt install git dkms

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

cd rtl8812au

sudo ./dkms-install.sh
