Hello, I'm trying to update this page to add info on Debian 11 that this dongle worked with, but when I click Save the information I entered is not saved.
Works in Debian GNU/Linux 11

------------------------------ 2022-05-15 ------------------------------
On Debian GNU/Linux 11 (with only the main archive enabled), with kernel Linux 4.9.0-15-amd64, libre firmware installation was straightforward:
sudo apt install build-essential libelf-dev linux-headers-`uname -r` dkms
git clone -b v5.6.4.2 'https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au'
cd rtl8812au
sudo make dkms_install
Vendor id and device id are below (not what's registered above):
ID 2357:011e TP-Link AC600 wireless Realtek RTL8811AU [Archer T2U Nano]
No modprobe was required after firmware installation and the WiFi dongle started working right after being plugged in. On my "50Mbs/10Mbs", the 5GHz band delivered 58Mbs/12Mbs. On 2.4 GHz, it went up to 35Mbs/10Mbs. Connection was stable in both cases with no issues with hours of heavy use.
Thanks for the report

I'll take a look later today.
Might be fixed

Sorry for the very late response. I attempted a fix on the server and just managed to add Debian GNU/Linux 11 bullseye to "tested on". Do you mind trying editing again?
Nonfree firmware blob?

The arrays at https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/blob/v5.6.4.2/hal/rtl8812a/hal8821a_fw.c look like source-less firmware blobs. Does anyone know if source code is available for these? If not, the hardware should probably marked as not working, right?
