TP T1U USB dongle - driver does not compile in debian 10/Bus

Postby rln » 2019-07-27 08:27

Hi all,

I've been "pushed around" on the Internet in trying to find a way to compile and install a driver for a TP Archer T1U(EU) v.2, and my latest "hit" was on https://wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_Archer_T1U.
According to TP, the chipset is MediaTek MT7610U.
Does anyone know some sort of "cookbook" - gudie for newbee's to make this dongle work in Debian 10/Buster ???
THX so much in advnce!
/René

THX so much - no, unfortunately I didn't see that - seems more than worth a try ;-)

Hm, looking thoroughly on the new dongle it says T2U instead of T1U - does it make a difference ?

You could try the solution from here read the last post by HOAS before starting out as it gives a the command for Debian to get all the headers. I can't say for sure that it will work in Buster but I have used the git repo in the guide for a USB adapter that wouldn't stay connected and it worked for me.

THX for your reply - but I already have an 8192CU working with Paret's fix.
Hence the 8192CU modules that are seen in lsmod result.

This is about the TP-Link TP Archer T2U, and (I'm a Debian newbee) it seems that something might be wrong with the USB dongle detection ???
Maybe more errors, eg. I'm using wrong driver for the dongle T2U instead of my starting point of T1U ???

That's an old post :)

These commands are better:
Code: Select all
# apt install module-assistant
# m-a prepare

@OP: try https://github.com/openwrt/mt76

OK, I did the two m-a commands as listed.
And then I did the git clone on the suggested link.
I then tried to dive into the m76 catalogue and issue a make - it didn't work because there is no target ...

How are (all) the proper commands, then ?

And thx again and in advance for all your help - everybody.

That device needs the driver from here - https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8812au-1

It includes a dkms install script so should be really easy .

Quick lesson in finding Linux device drivers:
See this line? The 8 number code is the device ID.
Code: Select all
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2357:011e TP-Link


So search the interwebz for "linux 2357:011e" for which the first hit is https://askubuntu.com/questions/1149117 ... untu-18-04

I now CONFIRM that the suggested solution works.

I did exactly as described:

sudo apt install git dkms
git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8812au-1.git
cd rtl8812au-1
sudo ./dkms-install.sh


THX for all your help - and especially for your patience with me ...

Just to remind you:

There are 10 kinds of IT people - those who understand binary, and those who don't ;-)

THX for your help!
