supported Wifi dongles for Jetson TK1

We are trying for wifi connectivity for Jetson TK1. The wifi USB dongle used is from TP Link the model number is TL-WN725N and URL https://www.amazon.in/TP-Link-TL-WN725N-150Mbps-Wireless-Adapter/dp/B008IFXQFU?tag=googinhydr18418-21&tag=googinkenshoo-21&ascsubtag=4e3ea86c-3ac8-492b-ac00-6a5d9e5207aa

We have made all the efforts, but no luck, could anyone help us the appropriate TK1 drivers of the TPLink USB dongle OR suggest us the supported Wifi USB dongle for TK1 , help is greatly appreciated.

FYI.

TP-Link AC600 USB Wifi Adapter also does not work out of the box.

The device shows in lsusb as a Ralink device but with a different DeviceID to the RT3090 listed on the https://elinux.org/Jetson/Network_Adapters page. I’ll try to post its ID later…

@simon.collins88h1l,

I was able to get an AC600 (https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Mini-Wireless-Supports-10-9-10-14/dp/B07PB1X4CN) to run on the Jetson by doing the following:

sudo apt install dkms
git clone https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
git checkout 4235b0e
sed -i 's/CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = y/CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = n/g' Makefile
sed -i 's/CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_JET_NANO = n/CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_JET_NANO = y/g' Makefile
sed -i 's/install -m/install --force -m/g' Makefile.dkms
sudo make -f Makefile.dkms install

After rebooting the device, the AC600 drivers should be enabled and working.

Thank you, I will try your method with my Tplink Archer T4U adapter.
