Hello,

I recently purchased the Archer T4U V3. The box claims there is Linux support, but the TP-LINK website does not have any Linux
drivers for the V3, only the V2.
If official TP-LINK drivers exist, I would appreciate someone helping me find them.
If not, I was wondering what the chipset model is so I can look up some possible open-source drivers.

If it matters, I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, kernel 4.15.

Thanks!

Same issue

Purchased the same adapter with expectations of using on linux. Attempts so far to get it working have not succeeded with some third party drivers I found. Would also like to know when official drivers are being released.

***Update***
I got the device working with the drivers from: https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8822bu
Edit the /os_dep/linux/usb_intf.c file and add in your usb device id in the " CONFIG_RTL8822B" section.

Would still love any update on official drivers.

I'm having the same issue getting Ubuntu desktop to recognize the T4U V3 adapter hardware. Could you provide a few more details on how to set this up using the driver you mentioned? I can run make, and make install, but it doesn't seem to work when I run modprobe. Also, how do I know what my usb device id is? Is this just the identifier for the device when I run lsusb?

I did this and still do not have it working. My device id is 2357, 0115 Kind of aggravating because I ordered an AC1200 t4u ver 1 and amazon sent me a AC1300 t4u ver3 (twice).

Would really like to know what driver I should be using Officially

pwall, you just made me very happy. Your driver ninja skills are most advanced. I owe you a month's supply of frosty beverages, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

pwall - glad I found your post as it worked for me on Ubuntu 18.04. In addition I had to change DNS settings in the TP Link router to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 to get the speed up to 275 Mbs.
