Installation of driver for TP-LINK TL-WN723N V2 wireless adapter in Ubuntu 12.10 (Qua

I have downloaded the adapter's driver for my Quantal system. The adapter’s Realtek chip is RTL8188CUS. Kindly advise how to install the driver, if possible. I have followed the instructions in the documentation, but received error messages and still cannot connect wirelessly with the adapter. I keep getting repeated messages that the Network Manager can be used to connect wirelessly, but this option only results in Firefox sending out the errors 'Server could not be found' and ‘Problem Opening Page’. Also it says that the network connection should be checked. I would be most grateful for your help.

My is a TN721N and is based on an Atheros driver. So are you sure the your TN723 is based on a RTL chip? If so, sorry but I can't help you yet.

In case the TN723N is based on an Atheros chip you should install the ath9k_htc driver AND the firmware file named "htc_9271.fw". Do not forget to unload/disabling the loading of the then wrong RTL driver.

Hope this helps...
