I was wondering how to install Debain based OS (Kali Linux) on my T4UHP, get it setup and running. I have had a lot of trouble with most of the tutorials and have decided to turn to fellow Linux user input. I have installed the drivers using:

apt install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms 

but still there is no light on adapter nor can i see the interface. Typing in ifconfig brings no new interfaces, i have tried reinstalling and rebooting. I tried Hunter's fix which worked really well until compiling the data, It gave me

> make clean make[1]: Entering directory '/tmp/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux'
> make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C
> /lib/modules/4.9.0-kali3-amd64/build M=/tmp/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
> clean make[2]: Entering directory '/tmp/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux'
> make[2]: *** /lib/modules/4.9.0-kali3-amd64/build: No such file or

The uname -a:

Linux Crow 4.9.0-kali3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.18-1kali1 (2017-04-04) x86_64 GNU/Linux

    What are you having troubles with? Add a little more information on what you tried already and what failed. – Hunter.S.Thompson Sep 18 '17 at 9:17
  • GAD3R, kali is a debain distro... – Benjamin Sep 18 '17 at 10:12

    @Benjamin In the recent update to the question you added a bit about make failing, but you forgot to include the actual error. That would be found a few lines further up in the make output. – Kusalananda Sep 18 '17 at 10:14
  • @Benjamin Yes , kali-linux is based on debian , it is better to use the correct tag for it. What is the output of uname -a ? – GAD3R Sep 18 '17 at 10:16

Install these drivers, they support the TPLink T4UHP.

 apt-get install dkms build-essential bc linux-headers-$(uname -r) ## Install some dependencies.
 cd /tmp
 git clone https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux.git
 cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
 make -f Makefile.dkms install
 reboot
  • Hey, i am having a problem which i assume is to do with headers – Benjamin Sep 18 '17 at 9:49
  • Makefile.dkms:11: recipe for target 'src_install' failed make: *** [src_install] Error 2 – Benjamin Sep 18 '17 at 9:50
  • @Benjamin Try installing the headers and then make.. I have updated the answer. – Hunter.S.Thompson Sep 18 '17 at 13:19
