Compatible Wireless USB Adapters

Postby Kev_Berry » Fri May 02, 2014 8:49 am


I've just purchased the TP-Link TL-WN725N Wireless USB Adapter - as I was told it worked "out-of-the-box" on Linux.
However, it appears that only V1 of this adapter is compatible, as the one I have doesn't even get detected....

(as a Newbie I'm not too sure how to try and manually search for new hardware)

Any pointers on how to try and get this Adapter detected / working.....or if it is known to be non-compatible,
simply some advice on an adapter that is compatible (and works out-of-the-box) - would be greatly appreciated.....

Thank You for your help.....
