yes but let me explain:
this thread is about HoRNDI which you were able to make work for M1.
I asked if you can do the same for https://github.com/chris1111/Wireless-USB-Big-Sur-Adapter which also doesn't support M1.
for that project I see that an adapter I have ("TP-Link T2UH") is not supported because it has a MediaTek chip.
instead I have another adapter that has a Realtek chip 8821CU that is largely supported by that project - so that's why I mentioned it.

I can also test with the T2U if you want, but it seems it has a different driver problem.

I have tested Archer T2U Plus and T2U Nano on my M1 Mac. It has RTL8821AU chip, as far as I am aware.
