Since my broadband upgrade from ADSL to gigabit fibre three days ago, I
can put greater load on my WiFi, and my TL-WN722N hangs under this heavy
load. Downloads or uploads of 3-4 GB files succeed only about a third of
the time. Hangs require USB disconnection and reconnection. I must
withdraw my recommendation.
Since upgrading from linux-image-4.17.0-1-amd64 4.17.8-1 to
linux-image-4.17.0-2-amd64 4.17.14-1 this morning, I have given my
TL-WN722N a workout, with one 3.0 GB upload and six 4.0 GB downloads
with the same servers as before, all successful, with no hangs. Perhaps
the problems I encountered were related to interference that has now
gone away? Or have been fixed by kernel driver improvements? Anyway, my
TL-WN722N now seems quite stable under load.
