I Bought TP-Link AC1300 Mini-Wireless MU-MIMO USB Adapter Archer T3U.

 

I know there is no official support for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Can any body help me to make it work with my Ubuntu 20.04

@BBiswas Hey!

 

I had the same problem, check out Jags solution on Ask Ubuntu under Proper Way of Installing Wifi Drivers.

For convenience, I'll repost it here, because I can't seem to attach the link, but I take no credit for the following solution or the github repo. Make sure the adapter is unplugged, and tether to a phone or connect to ethernet. In terminal, do:

 

 
git clone https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2bu.git
cd rtl88x2bu
VER=$(sed -n 's/\PACKAGE_VERSION="\(.*\)"/\1/p' dkms.conf)
sudo rsync -rvhP ./ /usr/src/rtl88x2bu-${VER}
sudo dkms add -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
sudo dkms build -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
sudo dkms install -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
sudo modprobe 88x2bu

 

Hope this helped and cheers,

Thanks for posting and sharing the fix provided by Jags. It worked perfectly for me on Ubuntu 19.10 with my new tp-link AC1300 Archer T3U!

@MonkeyDLuffy After hours of struggling trying to get other solutions to work and using slow ethernet, your solution worked. Thank you!

@zayx had the same problem. If during the install process you were asked for a password, secure boot is enabled and the kernel has to be newly signed. So before you do the modprobe you have to reboot. On reboot you are asked for a MOK-ENROLL (Machine-Owner Key) after pushing ok you are asked for the password. If you entered it correctly the new kernel will work and you cann do the modprobe. After this the tp-link device should work hopefully as it did for me.

 

Handle with care and no warranty from my side ;-)

@BBiswas 

 

how do we request this firmware to be included in the next Ubuntu kernel update? Who can send or notify the maintainers?
