USB-WiFi adapter. Tp-Link, model TL-WN725N issue

Hi,
I bought a USB-WiFi adapter. It’s a Tp-Link, model TL-WN725N. But I can’t connect to my computer. Has anybody try this USB-WiFi adapter? Is it compatible?

this does not work on the organelle-1
you need a wifi dongle using the Ralink 5370 chipset , often branded as for rPI and are very cheap. but check the chipset as this is the only guarantee.


for completeness, in case other search and find this post…
the TL-WN725N does partially work with Organelle-M, you can use it to connect to existing networks, but it does not work as an access point.

EDIT: for those with an organelle-m,
you can get the TL-WN725N to work as an access point by following the instructions from this post
https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=62371&start=1425#p1602481

this installs a new driver for the 8188eu chipset (used by TN-WN725N) that supports AP mode.
(this will NOT work for the organelle-1, as it use arch linux, not raspbian)
