Update 1/18/2013 - Seems to always happen this way. Right after I buy something, a better/cheaper version pops up. In this case, another vendor had the TL-WN722N, bundled with a "UC100" USB cradle, for about the same price as I paid for the TL-WN721N. I'm still happy with the 21's performance (despite the occasional need to unplug/replug it to the USB cable.) But I think the 22 is better because it includes an external antenna, promising better signal strength, and the included cradle keeps the adapter from flopping around in some unattractive fashion. With the 22 I get 26Mbps downstream, 4.06 upstream. Clearly the better choice.
Although others have indicated this is plug and play, here is how I got it to work on Linux Mint 14:
1. plug it into your USB port (nothing happened for me)
2. connect an ethernet cable to your PC
3. Start your Update Manager and let it find the software it needs
4. Go into your Network Manager. It should detect your wireless adapter. Configure your wireless security and you should be good to go.
For anyone wondering, this USB wireless adapter works flawlessly with LM14 including being able to wake up normally from suspend mode. My only concern is the week signal it shows (80%) when the PC is within 5 feet of an Asus N Router. Hopefully, it will behave normally once I move the PC 35 ft away.
