problems with usb wifi adapter

I recently went from windows 7 to Ubuntu 11.04, had to many issues so I am trying out 10.04LTS, But now my wireless usb won't work.. It worked just fine in 11.04 tho.

It is a TP-LINK TL-WN722N usb card, i've done some searching but nothing is really working for me.. I tried installing ath9k_htc installer, but that doesnt seem to fix anything.

I would go through this thread:

You also may be able to get it to work by using a newer kernel than the version in 10.04.
