    make sure you have your kernel headers installed

    if your adapter is the TL-WN821N v2, you need to get the firmware from h++p://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ar9170

    download compat-wireless-2009-09-18.tar.bz2 from
    h++p://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/

    then run:
    Code:
    tar jxvf compat-wireless-2009-09-18.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless-2009-09-18
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo make unload
    reboot
