May be you can help me from Jordon!
I got a TP-LINK 941ND because this web page said there were 4 versions, 1,2,3
and 4 and all of the were supported. So what happens? They sent it to me and
it is version 3.5! which is not listed.
Can you help me? By the way it came with a GPL CARD. So apparently the
installed version uses LINUX.
