TP-link's TL-wn725n V2 Nano USB driver for Linux 3.12.28

Wed Sep 17, 2014 12:38 pm

I'm Trying to get TP-link's TL-wn725n V2 Nano USB adapter working with my Raspberry PI and an running into problems. I've read a few posts, but an getting myself confused.

I can SSH via Ethernet to the PI

I've:

1) uname -a which gives

Linux raspberrypi 3.12.28+ #712 PREEMPT Tue Sep 16 15:49:13 BST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux
2) lsusb which gives

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1a2c:0002

3) The current network setup worked perfectly with http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-single ... pter-a71lb adapter but I think I need to find the correct driver to install for the current adapter.

4) I've found http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 82#p462982, but it only lists drivers up to Linux version 3.12.26 and I'm on 3.12.28.

Can someone please point me in the correct direction for the correct driver and how to install it?

Towards the end of this thread is instructions to compile the correct version for your firmware
