Problems with TP link usb wifi adapter

Installed Manjaro on my main PC because windows was causing me to contract aids and ofc arch linux and its forks/distros ftw

using TL-WN228N(US) ver 5.0 as my TP-link adapted, my problem is that it only supports linux kernels for 4.9 and below, and because my adpator cant connect to the internet because of that, i cant downgrade my linux kernel from the command line normally or download anything of the net in manjaro to get it working.

does anyone know how to get the adapter working with manjaro being offline (say download something from my laptop running windows then transporting it via USB to the manjaro PC and doing whatever to get it work)

thanks 4 the help
