I got it working here:

Why TP-Link doesn't keep this driver updated is shameful!

The current driver for the T2U is only available for Linux Kernel versions 2.6~3.16.  Developement on later versions relies primarliy on the chipset maker releasing a valid driver.

Thank you for providing Jay with a solution.  Just so you know drivers are first developed by the chipset maker.  From there once we recieve an offical driver from them we can begin to develop the driver and any custom settings we may need to provide.  Many times we just don't recieve drivers quick enough.  The same thing happens with Windows 10 and osX.

Yes, well @jayrodge, I apologize because the driver I linked to is for the:  Archer T9UH and prolly wont work for you. GitHub and other's like it(GitLab, etc.) seem to be full of different levels of supported drivers for the various devices that are not well supported from the chipset manufacturor.
