This image only works with NOOBS v1.2.1. In NOOBS v1.3 some structural changes bar it from working.
We have, though, released the driver in our repository, for an easy installation – thus, this image should not be necessary, except for academical purposes.
Original Article follows:
We hereby present the Raspberry Pi community a NOOBS image with preinstalled Raspbian TP-Link TL-WN725N v2.0 driver.
This archive contains a Raspbian Wheezy HF with
- updates as of 01.09.2013
- preinstalled TP-Link TL-WN725N v2.0 WiFi driver
- preinstalled pi3g repository
Insert an SD card with NOOBS on it. Delete one or several of the other images in the SD card’s /images folder – you need to free up about 350 MB of space. We suggest to remove the Raspbian image, as this image can serve as an enhanced drop-in replacement.
Go to the top folder of the SD card. Copy the contents of this archive into it (preserving folder structure). When asked whether you want to overwrite “A.png”, say “yes”. (This will add our slides with further information and instructions).
Remove the SD card. Insert it into a Raspberry Pi, boot. Press “Shift” during the boot process, to enter the rescue mode.
Select “pi3g-tplink-v2” to install, and be patient while the image is extracted and installed.
Click OK when the image installation process has been finished.
After the reboot process you will be presented with raspi-config. It is highly advisable to set at least your keyboard layout here. You can continue to use the system like any other normal Raspbian installation.
“ifconfig” should now show you your TP-Link WiFi Adapter.

Thank you to: mr-minifig @ GitHUB, whose script was used in the preparation of this image for NOOBS. And of course to the authors of the WiFi driver, and MrEngman from the Raspberry Pi Forum!
