TP Link WN725N driver for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS running kernel 4.4

I'm currently running Ubuntu 14.04.3 with kernel version 3.19.0-25-generic and use the TP Link WN725N for Wi-fi.

I followed this guide for the driver installation otherwise I'd get barely any signal:

how to install tp link wn725n wifi usb adapter on ubuntu Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS

I installed 16.04 with kernel 4.4 a week ago but the adapter didn't work out of the box so I followed the above method again but it didn't work. I was, like before, barely getting any signal.

Any way to get the drivers working for kernel 4.4?

EDIT: Output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 as requested:

09:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8191SEvA Wireless LAN Controller [10ec:8171] (rev 10) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:1467] Kernel driver in use: rtl8192se 


You can install a driver for this adapter this way:

  1. Disable Secure Boot if you are using UEFI.
  2. Run in terminal:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install rtl8192eu-dkms

I patched the driver for kernel 4.4.
