TP-Link WN725N - desktop mode doesn't work

Fri Jun 26, 2015 10:10 pm

Hi everyone,
I have TP-LINK WN725N Wi-Fi usb card.
I use the newest rasbian whezzy 3.18 2015-05-05. When I plug TP-Link while PI works with the desktop mode PI at once reboots itself and loads command line successfully.
Next I start desktop mode (startx) then display/monitor gets black and PI works and works endlessly without effect.
I have 5.2V / 2A power supply so it is more than recommended.
What is wrong? How can I get desktop mode with TP-LINK WN725N connected to the PI?

Probably the network applet in panel is not working good. I have issues like this when I use a USB audio card. So, remove wifi dongle, startx, remove network applet from panel, logout. Insert wifi dongle and startx. See if the panel applet was responsible.
English isn’t my first language, so please excuse any mistakes.
