struggling the same on bt4:
dmesg after plugging in:
usb 2-1: USB disconnect, address 4
usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 2-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5

after the ifconfig, dmesg states:
# ifconfig wlan1 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
tried, patching, grabbing firmware, searched thoroughly through these forums, but failed. it just may be that the TP-LINK WN422g is a no go
usb 2-1: firmware: requesting zd1211/zd1211b_ub
usb 2-1: firmware: requesting zd1211/zd1211b_uphr
zd1211rw 2-1:1.0: RF MAXIM_NEW_RF 0x8 is not supported
I hear success on ubuntu forums by using the ndiswrapper, but that doesnt support monitor mode does it?
