Does it support AP Mode on the two bands?

Unfortunately I haven't tried that, but FreshTomato is pretty featureful, I wouldn't be surprised if it did

You can check if your device supports AP mode by running "iw list " and looking in the 'Supported interface mode*s' section for "*AP" .

@odhiambo I get the following modes for my TP-Link T3U Plus (AC1300):

	 * IBSS
	 * managed
	 * AP
	 * monitor
	 * P2P-client
	 * P2P-GO

@TomK32 the "AP" bit means it supports AP mode. Which T3U do you have - the nano or the bigger one?
Perhaps you can configure an AP using the 5GHz mode in hostapd.conf and let us know if it works? I'd like to get one if it does.

@odhiambo the big one. It took a while but I have it running as AP on 5Ghz on my Raspberry Pi 3B+

@TomK32 thanks for that update. I am going for it! I needed one like that for the very same purpose. And since it's dual-band, please try and run an AP on each band.

Thanks for sharing this clear guide.

To anyone reading, I got this working with an AC1300 T3U Plus (EU model) by following the steps exactly. Before installation, the T3U Plus showed up with lsusb as ID 2357:0138 TP-Link 802.11ac NIC but it was not recognised as a network interface. After installation, all functions of the device worked as expected.

Running iw list told me that the enabled capabilities of the T3U Plus were the following:

IBSS
managed
AP
AP/VLAN
monitor
P2P-client
P2P-GO
P2P-device

OS: Kali Linux 2023.2 (Linux 6.1.0-kali9-amd64) installed on bare metal
