TPLink AC600 driver installation


Dear ZenWalkers:

I'm trying to install on my up-to-date ZW system a tp-link AC600 Mini Wireless USB adaptor, so far with no success as the manufacturer has developed -- surprise surprise -- no driver (u. https://tinyurl.com/y23uckoa) with Linux support.

I've tried a few solutions proposed around the Internet -- notably here (u. https://tinyurl.com/yxt4e53e), here (u. https://tinyurl.com/y3tyrvwa) and here (u. https://tinyurl.com/y5ze2yxt) -- but none would work, either because of errors during compilation or my limited understanding of kernel module activation.

Has any of you experienced the same issue, and hopefully found a solution? I append below the list of my system's USB buses:

Code:
$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 413c:8160 Dell Computer Corp. Wireless 365 Bluetooth
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 413c:8162 Dell Computer Corp. Integrated Touchpad [Synaptics]
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 413c:8161 Dell Computer Corp. Integrated Keyboard
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0c45:6480 Microdia Sonix 1.3 MP Laptop Integrated Webcam
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Many thanks in advance for your help!

Hi.

I would believe ndiswrapper is installable from your package manager? Then you can use it to install the windows driver, I think it has a GUI version too...

Have fun!

Edit\add; this is also current and gay be helpful: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...uh-4175661319/

Hi jamison20000e:

Thank you for your response and help. I've followed instructions in the thread you've referred me too, unfortunately to no avail: I get "bad return status" errors upon build; as a consequence the adaptor (idVendor: 2357, idProduct: 011f)) would just refuse to give signs of life. And yes: I've got a 4.19.75 Linux kernel.

Ndiswrapper could do as well, You'd basically use the windows driver or at least a bit of it. It's been a long time since I've used it but I think it would be the bin file?
I'm sure there's plenty of documentation on how to use it.

I might be able to, jamison20000e, but unfortunately I don't have much time at present to dedicate to this matter; I'll try working around NdisWrapper over the next week or so.

Thank you nonetheless for your advice!
