I assume you mean TL-WN8200ND? That device is 'interesting' in the least
positive sense of the word. It seems abandoned by the manufacturer
too. I have one of them but never managed to get it working, not with
any driver under Linux nor Windows.

TP-Link shipped a driver disc with it, but you cannot install that in
any recent version of Windows because the OS ships with it's own driver
for the 8192cu/8188cu series and the device uses the common USB ID. I
have been meaning to see if I could find a box with Vista on it to
install their driver and run a USB trace on it.

That is odd - I use it regularly and haven't had problems with it.
