I recently built a barebones machine (shuttle SH67H3), installed Oneiric (64-bit) and everything was great (no wireless card but wired connection was fine).
Now our router has changed locations and I'm trying to get wireless to work. I purchased a TP-Link TL-WN722N because I saw this post and assumed it would be smooth sailing from the moment the wireless usb adapter arrived at my home. WRONG.
Has anyone had any experience setting this up? I've downloaded the compat-wireless-driver, compiled and run install (all successfully) but am unable to load it.
If there are any alternative devices that are known to work with my setup I would love to hear about them as well.
I've installed the linux backports modules successfully and rebooted several times. Still no wireless activity.
When I list the usb devices it can clearly see the wireless adapter (Bus 003 Device 003) plugged in:

I have tried installing
linux-backports-modules-cw-3.1-oneiric-genericbut that did not work. The wireless network does not appear under the connection settings.
I tried wrapping the Windows XP driver following this post using the
ndiswrapperpackages. All of the driver .inf files failed to load properly except the Windows XP version. The XP version loaded and even recognized the hardware. Still no wireless network options after several reboots and unplugs/replugs.
Are there any other setup steps that I am missing? After installing
linux-backports-modules-cw-3.1-oneric-generic and rebooting should the wireless network just show up under the network settings? Is there anything else I can check at this point?
I'm willing to settle my loses and buy a different wifi adapter if I could be certain it would work with my setup. Anyone using 11.10 + usb wifi adapter?
