I have tried installing the TP-Link Archer 2TUH but whenever I got to terminal with the drivers and type "make" get a bunch of errors saying

"root@f1nd3r:~/Desktop/Archer_T2UH_V1_150909# make
make -C UTIL/ osutil
make[1]: Entering directory '/root/Desktop/Archer_T2UH_V1_150909/UTIL'

make[2]: Entering directory '/root/Desktop/Archer_T2UH_V1_150909/UTIL'
make[2]: *** /lib/modules/4.6.0-kali1-amd64/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.

make[1]: Leaving directory '/root/Desktop/Archer_T2UH_V1_150909/UTIL'

Is there a fix for this? Thank you :)

Luckily, I have an answer to this question. You have to install kernel headers.

apt-get install linux-headers-amd64

That was my situation before, and now you'll face the same error as me, btw let me know if not:

  • Looks like this can be the solutionI've got the patch file, but not sure how to get it working - I've copied it to lib/modules/4.8.0-kali-amd64/kernel – Attila Kalman Nov 23 '16 at 12:52
  • Looks like this can be the solution link I've got the patch file, but not sure how to get it installed - I've copied it to lib/modules/4.8.0-kali-amd64/kernel and tried the command patch -p1 but it seems like just hanging. I can't comment on that page to ask how to, as I don't have 50reps.. @SpaceGoat – Attila Kalman Nov 23 '16 at 12:56
