How do I install drivers for TP-WN822N?

I've downloaded the sources from TP-Link website. How would I go about installing it?

What firmware revision? Should say V{#} after the model number on some label on the product. The TP-Link TP-WN822N V4 uses a Realtek RTL8192EU. So the rtl819x driver (https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/rtl819x) included with Kernel 4.36+ should be all you need.

Thank you for replying and trying to help. It's an EU version with V4. But when I connected it was having trouble connecting to networks. Getting stuck at "configuring interface".

while the kernel's included driver should be all that you need, as you have found it is categorically not the case. normally if you can get past the configuration point it will only work for minutes before dropping the connection or not responding. the device actually needs a patched (https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver) version instead. the link takes you to source code from which you can build the driver. the partially complete instructions are geared up for ubuntu though. a better guide (again ubuntu-centric) is actually written for another realtek device as it contains details about blacklisting (https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes) the faulty driver as well.
