    Depending on a few factors, the TL-WN723N might be supported "out of the box", first we need to figure out what version of the USB dongle it is.

    1. Run lsusb
    and post the results here;
    Code:
    And put the results in CODE tags like this!
    2. Make sure kernel-firmware package is installed as the dongle requires the firmware

    If kernel-firmware was not installed, remove the USB stick and re-insert it after installing the firmware.

    Thanks you for aswering me.
    The command returned
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 1bcf:0005 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. 
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0cf3:3005 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3011 Bluetooth
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0c45:64be Microdia 
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    And the kernel-firmware is already installed

    The relevant device is...
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
    This should have existing kernel support va the r8188eu driver.

    What does the following report?
    Code:
    usb-devices
    You could refine that search with
    Code:
    usb-devices|awk '/8179/' RS="\n\n"
    The kernel module should be loaded when the device is plugged in.

    This should show the wireless device node present
    Code:
    ip link

    I note from re-reading your opening post that you mentioned
    My laptop wireless adapter its not working. I buy the wireless adapter TL-WN723N from TP-LINK.
    I wonder if your wireless device is soft-blocked perhaps? If your inbuilt device is disabled, that can affect any other connected wifi devices as well. You may need to install the 'rfkill' package first.

    Check status with
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/rfkill list
    If necessary, unblock wifi with
    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/rfkill unblock wifi
    then check if a wireless device node exists again.

    No. The problem is the internal wireless adapter. I have two boot systems (Windows 7 and OpenSUSE), on both OS, the adapter it does not work correctly, if i have the router next it, the wifi signal us minimal. That's why I bought the TL-WN723N.

    The second search returned

    The eth0 is the ethernet adapter, wlan0 is the wireless adapter of the laptop and wlan1 is a wireless adapter from a friend.

    The return of usb-devices it's too big, but i attach it if you need it

    Yes, and I got that already.

    That confirms that the driver is loaded.

    The eth0 is the ethernet adapter, wlan0 is the wireless adapter of the laptop and wlan1 is a wireless adapter from a friend.
    This doesn't quite make sense to me. Please run
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --wlan

    The MAC address prefix 98:de:d0 is associated with Tp-link Technologies Co.,ltd. It should be just a matter of configuring a connection with NetworkManager.
