I recently acquired the TP-LINK Archer T3U. I tried several solutions but still does not work. I tried with https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.3.1_27678.20180430_COEX20180427-5959/ and https://github.com/jeremyb31/

sudo lshw -class network throws:

I have just recently updated https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8822bu to support this device Make sure the other dkms modules are gone

sudo dkms remove rtl88x2bu/5.3.1 --all
sudo dkms remove 8822bu/1.1 --all

Remove any possible manual installs using make

cd rtl8822bu && sudo make uninstall
Update the git
git pull

Remove cilynx

 cd ~/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.3.1_27678.20180430_COEX20180427-5959 
sudo make uninstall

Install updated version from https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8822bu

cd ~
sudo dkms add ./rtl8822bu
sudo dkms install 8822bu/1.1
Reboot

  • That worked great! Thanks! – Rafael Cordano Apr 16 '19 at 12:19
  • I didn't get anything you just wrote. I installed the driver, typed "sudo dkms add ./rtl8822bu" and got "Directory: /usr/src/.-rtl8822bu does not exist.". Do you have a more understandable installation guide somewhere? – Rubi Shnol Oct 4 '19 at 18:46
  • @RubiShnol Please understand that the commands in the answer are the direct result of the info given in the question, your issue is likely different and you should ask your own question – Jeremy31 Oct 4 '19 at 21:35
  • Ok so here is my question – Rubi Shnol Oct 4 '19 at 22:32
  • The driver does not compile on linux 5.3 – ranjan_purbey Nov 6 '19 at 15:49

Create a file in ~/Downloads called install_t3u.sh with the following content:

#To run script, type 'sudo ./install_t3u.sh' in ~/Downloads/
##This bash-script assumes your CPU has eight-threads.

sudo dkms remove rtl88x2bu/5.3.1 --all;
sudo dkms remove 8822bu/1.1 --all;

cd ~/Downloads/;
git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8822bu;
cd rtl8822bu/;
make uninstall -j 8;
make -j 8;
make install -j 8;
cd ../;
sudo cp -R rtl8822bu/ /usr/src/.-rtl8822bu/;
sudo dkms add ./rtl8822bu;
sudo rm -R rtl8822bu/;
echo "Install completed. Please reboot.";
echo "Try: 'sudo shutdown -f now' or 'reboot'";

While in same directory, execute sudo ./install_t3u.sh
