No wifi on rpi2 using Archer T2U Nano

So I am attempting to put some rpi 2 devices I had in a drawer to use in my balenaSound project however I cannot get it to connect. The settings are there and confirmed correct, i do not see wlan0 in the output of ifconfig.

root@balena:~# nmcli con show
NAME                UUID                                  TYPE      DEVICE      
Wired connection 1  ca55bd95-98bc-316c-a27c-7eb49bd89f65  ethernet  eth0        
supervisor0         1c29e6bc-8cef-41a4-aa8e-e571c7e577f1  bridge    supervisor0 
balena-wifi-01      983466c0-806d-361b-9535-e4b548cf0d62  wifi      --       

unplugging and replugging the dongle dmesg shows this upon insertion.
