Driver problem TL-WN725N version 2.2

I have tried most of the solutions available for the driver problem on this wifi adapter.
I have installed the dkms-8188eu driver from the aur and the latest driver from the git of lwfinger but no gain below is the output of after plugging in the adapter:
Output of lsusb:

If I use the lwfinger's driver in place of RTL871X I see r8188eu and the error message is same.The device is working fine in windows pc.
Any help is appreciated.

Re: Driver problem TL-WN725N version 2.2

The same issue here. How did you find that you have v2.2? I thought there are only two versions.

Re: Driver problem TL-WN725N version 2.2

I have a Comfast WU810N USB adapter, which uses the RTL8188EUS chipset.
Using (latest Arch) kernel driver, I kept getting errors from dmesg like:

R8188EU: ERROR indicate disassoc

However, a comment in the AUR suggested that new functionality in NetworkManager was the culprit, and here's what I added to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf at their suggestion:

[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no

The NetworkManager.service then needs to be restarted.

Adapter now works like a treat, using inbuilt kernel module r8188eu

Worth trying, or are you not using NetworkManager?

I had a similar problem with TL-WN725N and this workaround fixed it.
