Re: TP-LINK Archer T4U USB Wireless 802.11ac Adapter

Wouldn't you compile it for armv7 instead of armv6l ? I don't have one (yet) but I assume that's how it would work. Have a look around the forum here, there might be others compiling things for the new rpi. plowna For future reference, here is the script I use to compile this driver: Change BUILD to...

Re: TP-LINK Archer T4U USB Wireless 802.11ac Adapter

For future reference, here is the script I use to compile this driver: Change BUILD to whatever base directory you will use to compile it. I usually need to reboot to kick the wifi into gear. If you can't get the script to work ... I can't really help you. #!/bin/sh GIT=/usr/bin/git BUILD=/home/pi/b...

Re: TP-LINK Archer T4U USB Wireless 802.11ac Adapter

First up, here's the updated driver for 3.12.33+: No power saving, v4.2.2 . This is still working fine, though for the life of me I can't get it to connect to my 5ghz wifi. It just times out trying to connect, I haven't looked through the log files. I also compiled the driver with the newer sources ...

Re: TP-LINK Archer T4U USB Wireless 802.11ac Adapter

So would that be the max speed I am likely to get from the adapter? That's interesting (that it is held back by the design of the RPi). As it is currently it won't connect at all to my 5ghz network, there's nothing specific in dmesg/syslog/messages. I'll have a look at the D-Link driver tonight, see...

Re: TP-LINK Archer T4U USB Wireless 802.11ac Adapter

No problems, I'll give it a go. Current kernel commit # is 3.12.32+ #721. I don't quite know how to roll back kernel versions to compile for older kernels (like .28, .29) as I have been using Hexxeh's script to keep the firmware/kernel up to date (and referencing my own post above to recompile the m...

TP-LINK Archer T4U USB Wireless 802.11ac Adapter

Have managed to get this working and connected to my home AP using a couple of instructions on the board here. It appears to be based on the Realtek 8812au chipset. First up: MrEngman 's instructions on setting up a compile environment for compiling custom drivers. It's in a post further down the li...
