I have a TP-Link TL-WN722N USB wireless card and cannot get it to install. I found lots of information but I have not touched my Ubuntu machine in 4 months and basically forgot what little knowledge I had. I need somebody to translate this down to Linux preschooler level for me.

After reading this post, I was out of luck: How to install wireless antenna TP-LINK TL-WN722N?

I found a driver at http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Devices/USB backed up by some Newegg reviews.

This is where the download is, but it might as well be written in Arabic because I cannot make any sense of it. http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Download

Is there an easier way to make this work or at least somebody that can explain this in the same manner they explain how to use a cell phone to their grandparents?

I am using a 7 year old laptop would I just be better upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04?
