I bought one of these the other day as well. Works well with Etch, Feisty, and 
Gutsy. Checkout http://madwifi.org/wiki/Compatibility/TP-Link for more info 
on what TP-Link cards are compatible.

One thing to note: I have had problems getting wpa_supplicant to connect on 
Etch when the AP's SSID is hidden. Since there's not really much security 
benefit in doing this anyway I just opted to leave it visible with a MAC 
access control list to restrict access (and WPA of course!).
