Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 3.12.36+

Here's my suggestions : 1/ First shutdown your wireless interface sudo /sbin/ifdown wlan0 1/ Edit your /etc/network/interfaces then delete everything and paste those lines inside : auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp #auto wlan0 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static a...

For the sake of entirely ruling out the possibility of a dongle hardware failure, did you try to use it on a windows 7 or linux mint box ? Drivers are usually provided out of the box.

Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 3.12.36+

I've tested the module that comes with the firmware and apparently it doesn't work very well. So I compiled the one that I was using before which has proven to be very reliable: the realtek's v4.1.8_9499 module. I've uploaded some files here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2wdCXXIc98bZGR6c3c1X3V...

Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 3.12.36+

Driver or hardware issue?
Definitely not hardware related. Keep in mind we're pretty much all in the same boat !

Your WN725N used to work properly with the previous linux release (aka 3.12.x), isn't it ?

If you want to monitor the link quality continuously on screen, you could use :

I'm subscribing to this thread ! I'm experiencing the same difficulty with raspbian 3.18.35+, the signal strength is "jumpy" to say the least. Several speedest.net tests went fairly well, then the speed went down to a crawl after testing big files transfer. For the time being, i'll stick with my for...

Re: MATE for Raspbian
