Realtek RTL8188CUS chip requires nonfree software.

I connected the AirLink101 AWLL5088 card in a shop and nothing happened.

This chip is also used in the first version of the device with the name TP-LINK TL-WN725N. Please note it is a different chip in the second version, TP-LINK TL-WN725N v2.

The Realtek variant works without firmware in Debian 10.
