needing direct download link for software and drivers for TP-Link Wireless N USB Adapter

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           Yesterday, I received a TP-Link Wireless N USB Adapter to hook up to a laptop which has a bad WiFi card.  When I opened the package, I was surprised to see the software and drivers for this adapter is on a mini-cd.  Unfortunately, the laptop drive is only compatible with standard size cds and dvds.  As a work around for this situation, I am interested in dowloading the needed software and drivers for this adapter and placing these items onto a USB flash drive.  From there, I should be able to carry out the installation.  

             To help facilitate the goal of locating a direct download link for the software and drivers, I am including the following detailed information.  The model number for the TP-Link Wireless N USB Adapter is TL-WN725N.  The operating system on this laptop is Windows Vista SP2.  If more information is needed, please feel free to let me know and it will be furnished upon request.  

               In the meantime, I look forward to hearing back from everyone regarding this interest.  And, thanks so much in advance for any help given.  

               George

Hello and Good Morning,

             Thank you so much for the resourceful links.  After thinking about everything within this particular situation, would you mind providing some tips for the proper installation of the driver?  Should I unzip the downloaded file first and run an install or setup file if there is one present before connecting the wireless USB adapter?

I think in your case, when a setup file is present it is best to use that yes, failing that you can go through the device manager, right-click the device in question (or the yellow question mark of the unknown device) and click update driver... Or something along that line.

Hope this helps!

Hello and Good Morning,

             Thank you so much for the great and awesome help given here.  The direct download link provided worked out perfectly.  After zip file was downloaded, I simply extracted the files into its default folder, copied and pasted these files onto a USB flash drive, took it over to the laptop which had the defective WiFi card, and simply ran setup.  The installation process was very simple and quick.  In less than 10 minutes,  I had a wireless connection to the router in addition to a successful connection to the internet.  

               Many thanks once again for a job greatly done here.  Your input certainly made my life a lot easier.

               Have a great day : - )
