Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Basically I have the Archer T2U Plus and it was working fine with the latest Catalina driver.

When trying to install on Big Sur Beta though, the driver installation always fails and the antenna is not detected properly.

This is because Apple changed the driver installation backbone to DriverKit and all drivers have to be updated to support Big Sur.

 

Seeing as a lot of people around the world use this Wi-fi antenna, your development team should update the driver for Big Sur.

Please, also let me know if there is some sort of workaround to get it to work under Big Sur.

Hello all, I found a customer resolved his issue by installing the driver on his macOS Big Sur, you may check if you can make yours work as well:

Note: this may require to disable the SIP and give the authority of this App on your macOS, which is not recommended by Apple, it's up to you whether you want to try this.

@unknownharris 

Good day.

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

Sorry for the delay.

Till now, we did not have the driver for the MacOS Big Sur (11.0).

Please wait for a while and let me check with the senior engineers.

If there is any updated news, I would come back to you.

Thanks a lot.

Hi, any update on this? Big Sur public update just around the corner so would be ideal to get these drivers available before then.

 

Thanks

@Rob5Underscores 

Good day,

Thank you for your concern.

I am afraid that there is still no updated news yet.

And the related driver is still not available.

 

Really sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks a lot for your understanding and support.

@Kathy_Z Dear Kathy

Our concern is due to the fact that we need to be able to use the adapter.. Please give us a solution.. Do u have any other device that will work with the MacOS Big Sur?

Hello! Has there been any developments with this. I only just updated my Mac OS to BigSur and didn’t see any of these. Has TP Link released a driver for this or do I have to buy an different wireless USB adapter that does support Big Sur. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!
