TP-Link AC600 Archer T2U Nano driver for Ubuntu 18.04
I could not get this fix to work for me. I am in and out of Ubuntu; it's been at least 5 years since I have worked in Ubuntu and I swear it used to be easier to find drivers and almost anything I needed back then.
Here's the locations of my t2u:

     Bus 002 Device 007: ID 2357:0120

When I tried fixes from above I get:

    Reading package lists... Done

Any help would be amazing.
I tried using drivers from cd, tp link website, and the fix above.
Thank you.

  • You could install the latest drivers from this GitHub repo: https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git

    As per the repo, this is how you can install the drivers using DKMS method:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install dkms
    git clone -b v5.6.4.2 https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git
    cd rtl8812au
    sudo ./dkms-install.sh
    

    Your USB WiFi adapter should be working now.
