If you encountered any problems, set debug log use echo 5 > /proc/net/rtl88x2bu/log_level or modprobe 88x2bu rtw_drv_log_level=5, and post your dmesg and network managers logs to .

Everything is perfect so far. Driver installed and the key is automagically working as expected with excellent speed. We'll update eventually later. Excellent job

Hi @Rincat, still me but with good news. They were four months of crying with the T3U since every time I power on my desktop it takes from 5 minutes to 45 minutes to get stable WiFi working. Then, I have just changed the USB port for the adapter and magically it works flawlessly for two weeks to now. Before I was using a USB 3.2 Gen2 port (10Gbps), now I am using a USB 3.2 Gen1 (5Gbps). Probably the superspeed+ port is not fully supported by the driver and this causes problem (on Windows on the USB 3.2 Gen2 didn't work super well too). Leaving this comment here so that maybe other users can try this tactic too. Cheers, Davide

@RinCat just tried but this did not solve my issue. Here are the logs again just in case:

journalctl: dmesg:

@MildlyProductive try set rtw_power_mgnt=0

Hello, I'm having a problem with my TP-Link Archer T3U often seeming to lose connection, but NetworkManager does not report any actual disconnection. Sometimes it will solve itself, but usually I have to unplug and replug the adapter, then reconnect to my wifi. I tried removing and reloading the driver's kernel module, but this didn't solve the problem.

dmesg: NetworkManager:

@RinCat thanks, they're telling me that on the forums now as well. I'm rather confused but I've obviously misunderstood something. Either way it works for me - I'll stop posting erroneous comments on your package.

@344woi you only need to reinstall this package, it should use the latest version, I don't update the version every time I update the git.

@rincat that seems to have fixed the issue I was having. Thanks

This doesn't work with kernel 5.10.3, but on my local copy I changed the PKGBUILD so that _pkgver= and it works for me. So I think this package is out of date. See this forum post for more details:

@bobsicle0 try set rtw_power_mgnt=0. Since you got I/O error and the adapter has no response, the system in the adapter most likely stopped / panic. It may due to power save, but I am not sure.
