    This is a joke. I've been waiting patiently for months now, as many of us have, but my patience is at an end. I bought this product because it was advertised to support both Linux and macOS. You support neither of them, just old deprecated versions from over a year ago. Please serve your costumers. Get a driver out ASAP.

    Hello,

    Do we have an update and date for the release of the drivers?

    Thanks,

    Any news here? Why is this taking so long?

    This is getting ridiculous. I've been waiting for a driver update since December. It's now May. No news. No updates. Not even a clue as to when the driver will be ready. Can you please help us? Remember, we BOUGHT your product and just want it to work. Please don't treat your customers like this.

    Bad customer service

    For information they never respond to any emails I sent to them. So I have bought a new one Edimax 11n 150M 1T1R Wirelss NAN.
    Much cheaper and it is working perfectly. TP link I guess you have not read anything about customer service!

    I have this functioning in Sierra 10.12.5. I don't assume responsibility if you follow these instructions but they are provided in good faith.

    Inspired by this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/fil...ierra-working/

    Steps:

    1. Download http://static.tp-link.com/Archer%20T...161223_Mac.zip

    2. The zipfile does not extract for me easily using command-line unzip or the Finder built-in so do this in Terminal.app:
    unzip Archer\ T1U\(US\)_V1_161223_Mac.zip Archer_T1U\(US\)_V1_161223/TP-LINK_Installer.dmg

    3. Double-click TP-LINK_Installer.dmg in Finder

    4. Copy Installer.pkg to somewhere on your HDD

    5. In Terminal.app:
    $ pkgutil --expand Installer.pkg InstallerContents

    $ cd InstallerContents/
    $ ls
    Distribution Resources rt2870resources.pkg
    $ cd rt2870resources.pkg/
    $ ls
    Bom PackageInfo Payload Scripts
    $ file Payload
    Payload: gzip compressed data, from Unix
    $ mv Payload Payload.gz
    $ gunzip Payload.gz
    $ file Payload
    Payload: ASCII cpio archive (pre-SVR4 or odc)
    $ cpio -i < Payload

    39362 blocks
    $ ls
    API Driver PackageInfo Scripts
    Bom Other Payload UI
    $ cd Driver/
    $ ls
    EICapitan Lion MountainLion Yosemite
    Leopard Mavericks SnowLeopard
    $ cd EICapitan/
    $ ls

    RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext

    Follow these instructions to install that specific kext: http://osxdaily.com/2012/01/12/how-t...s-in-mac-os-x/

    Once restarted, remount the TP-LINK_Installer.dmg and run the Installer.pkg inside it like you normally would. Restart again. When you log in with this user, the Wireless Utility should start up and you can select your Wireless SSID and connect. Done!

    I have found for other users you need to set up the Wireless Utility that was installed in /Applications/TP-LINK Wireless Utility as a login item under System Settings > Users & Groups > (User) > Login Items.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks deathanddrek - confirmed working for me in Sierra 10.12.5.

    Actually confirmation of working was premature - I can see connections in the Wireless Utility but not connect to them.

    Thanks a lot for this! This works perfectly on a hackintosh running Sierra 10.12.6. I installed the extension in /Library/Extensions instead of /System/Library/Extensions. It still works though.

    "ElCapitan" folder is misspelled into folder "Driver". What is supposed to be "l" (ell) is a capital "i" after the capital "E" in "ElCapitan", I know how to rename the file, but I don't know how to rebuild the Install.pkg with this fix.

    On the other side,... I followed the instructions but no success on High Sierra.

    ElCapitan folder is misspelled inside Installer.pkg. What is supposed to be an "l" (lowercase ell) is a capital "i". Maybe a bug that makes installer doesn't work. I don't know how to rebuild the installer once the folder is renamed to its correct name.

    On the other side, I've tried deathanddrek step-by-step procedure but the dongle didn't work on my MacBook Pro (HighSierra)

    I have checked that NO driver for MAC os 10.12 on tp-llink official website, only up to OS10.11 for this adapter now
