The Problem

My Ubuntu 12.04 LTS does not seem to like my Tp-link wireless adapter. When i installed 12.04 it liked my adapter but know it has turned agasent me.I know there is nothing wrong with my adapter because i have a dual boot with windows 7 and windows 7 works with it in harmony. Please help. I have done the following to find the problem:
