Does anybody know whether the 'Archer T3U Plus (AC1300 High Gain Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter)' is compatible with the latest 'Linux Kernel version 5.15.0-30-generic (Ubuntu 22.04 LTS - Jammy Jellyfish)' or not?

The solution is given here:

https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/547276

 

As posted on the original link given above.

 

```

Works for 'Linux Kernel version 5.15.0-30-generic (Ubuntu 22.04 LTS - Jammy Jellyfish)'.

 

 

The following steps work for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish:

 

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install git linux-headers-generic dkms
$ wget https://github.com/RinCat/RTL88x2BU-Linux-Driver/archive/master.zip
$ unzip master.zip
$ cd RTL88x2BU-Linux-Driver-master
$ sudo make uninstall
$ make clean
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ sudo modprobe 88x2bu
$ sudo reboot

 

Disclaimer: I'm not the developer/maintainer for this driver. Issues, bugs, or future suggestions shall be posted directly to the author/contributors.

 

Edit - 1: Also, this is an unofficial (community) release. It is not endorsed by the TP-Link team. Use at your own risk!

Edit - 2: I have successfully tested this driver with 'T3U Plus' and 'T4U'. For 'dkms' version, run the following commands instead.

 

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install -y dkms git
$ sudo git clone 'https://github.com/RinCat/RTL88x2BU-Linux-Driver.git' /usr/src/rtl88x2bu-git
$ sudo sed -i 's/PACKAGE_VERSION="@PKGVER@"/PACKAGE_VERSION="git"/g' /usr/src/rtl88x2bu-git/dkms.conf
$ sudo dkms add -m rtl88x2bu -v git
$ sudo dkms autoinstall
$ sudo reboot

 

```

Thanks for this! For your information, I have updated my original post to include the dkms version.

@valario, have you used 'sudo' before the command? Also make sure you are using all the commands in the driver's directory.

If that is not the case then I am not sure why it is happening. You can check here once.

  @masked_titan 

 

It seems like he was having the same issue as this guy but managed to fix it by upgrading to kernel 5.15 first. However. he seems to have the same kernel version. See if selinux is involved.
