I'm currently fairly new to Linux so trying to get a grasp of all of it - I am trying to install drivers for my Wifi dongle Archer T4U (AC1300).

I have seen this post already: Ubuntu 18.04.1 and TP-Link Archer T4U(EU) v2.0 nightmare (RTL8812AU chipset)

And whilst the solution did work and I could use the dongle for internet, the performance wasn't great and the internet would become not responsive at times (assuming the drivers are the issue as it works flawlessly on Windows). TP Link have actually released some official Linux drivers on their support page after the creation of that first post, but I do not know how to install them.


Would appreciate it if you could guide me on how to install them, and I assume add them to DKMS?


  • First, let's be certain that you have the exact same device. Please run this terminal command and post the result: lsusb and also: sudo dkms status Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. – chili555 Apr 3 '19 at 15:07
