I'm new here using ubuntu and I installed 14.04 LTS. I'm trying to install a driver of TF-3200 TP-LINK and unfortunately I can't figure how to do it. I've search all over the internet and also refer to the CD of TP-LINK.
Check this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2166743. You can download the drivers here: http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=&model=TF-3200#down
1- I extracted all the files from the zip and browsed the directory:
user1@host1:~/Downloads$ cd TF-3200_100628/ user1@host1:~/Downloads/TF-3200_100628$ ls LinuxDriver Windowns 7 64bit Windows ME Windows XP_2003 Novell Netware Windows 2000 Windows Vista 32bit Windows XP 64bit Windowns 7 32bit Windows 98SE Windows Vista 64bit user1@host1:~/Downloads/TF-3200_100628$ cd LinuxDriver/ user1@host1:~/Downloads/TF-3200_100628/LinuxDriver$ ls compat.h ethtool.h mii.c readme.txt crc32.h Makefile mii.h sundance_main.c
2- Loaded the kernel module drivers:
user1@host1:~/Downloads/TF-3200_100628/LinuxDriver$ sudo modprobe mii; sudo modprobe sundance;
3- Verify how if it loaded correctly; I have no card, so I'm not able to see it in dmesg. You should, though.

Same in ip link details:

I already tried this one but I can't find the exact installation of the driver. it's not like in windows that you can click the driver installer or browse it. I tried all the terminal commands here but unfortunately nothing works. Sep 30, 2014 at 0:25
I tried to run the procedure as mentioned in xaie.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/tp-link-tf-3200-on-debian; Apparently no error. I edited my answer with the procedure I used. what’s the result of ifconfig and route? also, what do you have defined in /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf. Oct 9, 2014 at 8:50
