I just bought this USB wifi adapter, TP-Link Archer T2U AC600, from BestBuy (Canada) since it stated that it had linux support on their website. I have tried the driver software from the TP-Link website. It fails to even make.
I tried their FAQ as well for installing on linux. http://www.tp-link.com/en/faq-1076.html
That lead me to here: https://github.com/lixz789/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916
This driver also fails to install:
make -C /home/me/tplink/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916/os/linux -f Makefile.6 install
make: Entering directory '/home/me/tplink/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916/os/linux'

Makefile:501: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: * [install] Error 2
Edit: I wanted to add the lsusb output as well. But it is not even listed there on Ubuntu 15.10 64bit.
Edit2: Tried the sudo make command. It made without errors this time. I followed the rest of the instructions on the git site. Once I installed and rebooted, the adapter is still not being detected and the software caused an internal error.
Edit3: I checked for the mt7601u.ko file. It is in the correct folder. I will post the lsusb later.
Is there any solution to this? If not, can someone recommend me the a good recent usb wifi adapter for Ubuntu 15.10 (and possibly 16.04)?
