I just bought TP-Link Wireless N Nano USB Adapter TL-WN725N today.
After using lsusb, it said:
"Bus 001 Device 004 : ID 0bds:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188EUS 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter"

Can you please teach me to install the driver step by step?

Thank you in advance.

The package name is kmod-rtl8187se. However it is available only for el6, not for el7.

Does this mean the card will not work under Centos 7?

Please see attached picture.
I've installed elrepo-release-7.0-3.el7.elrepo.noarch.rpm
and kmod-8188eu-4.1.4_6773.20130222-5.el7_6.elrepo.x86_64.rpm

CentOS 7.6-1810 Desktop still can't find USB Wi-Fi adapter.

What should I do next?

As root, run lsmod | grep 8188 - does that list anything? If not, again as root, run modprobe 8188eu then repeat the lsmod from before - does it show 8188eu now? If it doesn't then check in /var/log/messages for errors. If it does then check to see if the adapter is showing up now.
