I dual booted Linux(Manjaro xfce) with windows 7.

As my laptop doesnt support 5g wifi routers, I bought a tplink USB wifi Adaptor(Archer T2U Plus). I installed the drivers from its manual on windows 7 but there are no drivers for linux.

Can I install that driver in Linux and use the network adaptor? If yes then please explain how

Those sticks usually have realtek chip sets and there should be a linux driver for it. Ndis wrapper may work but you would be better off to use the linux driver for that chip. here a page that tells you how.

That page is for ubuntu or derivatives but the driver you need would be the same on manjaro just look for it in the AUR.
