Driver Package for TP-LINK Archer T3U Plus : Chipset Realtek RTL8812BU

I have the Archer T3U Plus Wireless USB device. I am running

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.4
OpenWrt 21.02.1 r16325-88151b8303 / LuCI openwrt-21.02 branch git-21.327.65561-7f37a58

I have installed kmod-rtw88, however not working. The device is picked when run lsusb

root@OpenWrt:/# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux 5.4.154 xhci-hcd xHCI Host Controller

I would appreciate if a package was introduced for this chipset.
