Review of Linux Compatibility

The TP-Link TL-WDN3200 is a USB WiFi stick with the USB ID 148f:5572:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:5572 Ralink Technology, Corp.

The stick bases on the Ralink 5572 chipset and is supported by Linux via the kernel module rt5572sta. Unfortunately, this module is not part of the standard kernel (see bug report) yet. Hence, the TL-WDN3200 is not automatically activated by the current distributions, e.g. Ubuntu 12.04.

A Linux driver is available at http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/01_windows.php?sn=501. This driver has to be slightly edited before it can be compiled under Linux.

A already modified version of the driver can be found at http://www.ctheroux.com/publicfiles/DPO_RT5572_LinuxSTA_2.6.0.1_20120629_EDITED.tar.bz2.bz2 and saves the hazzle of editing some files of the rt5572 driver.

After downloading the driver it has to be unpacked:

tar xvf DPO_RT5572_LinuxSTA_2.6.0.1_20120629.tar.bz2.bz2

compiled and installed

cd DPO_RT5572_LinuxSTA_2.6.0.1_20120629
sudo make
sudo make install

    Bom dia, funcionou muito bem, mas em 5.8 GHz nao esta funcionando. Alguem teve o mesmo problema ?

    Good morning, it worked fine, but 5.8 GHz is not working. Someone had the same problem?

      Hello Otto,

      According to its specification the TL-WDN3200 should support frequencies between 5,745 to 5,825GHz. Maybe it is a issue of the driver.

      Could you please send the output of
      tail -f /var/log/syslog
      that appears if the stick is plugged in?

    Thanks for the edited drivers. They worked perfectly on a 512MB RAM Raspberry Pi running Raspberian installed via N.O.O.B.S.
