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_126.96.36.199_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_188.8.131.52_20120629.tar.bz2.bz2
compiled and installed
cd DPO_RT5572_LinuxSTA_184.108.40.206_20120629 sudo make sudo make install
