I bought TP-LINK TP-WN722N usb-wifi dongle because I heard it works extremely well with Linux. But.. It's not even recognized as a usb device. The dongle itself works perfectly on my Windows machine. It is the V2 dongle, and when I asked about it on Reddit, a user commented: "V2 uses a non-Atheros chipset." Not sure if that makes all the difference then. Any ideas?

The V2 as I stated, already tried installing the drivers from manufacturers site but it didn't work. But what do you know, checking your link and navigating to and compiling the driver seems to have worked, cool. Thanks!
