Installing Wireless Adapter on old PC running Ubuntu

Installing TP-Link's Wireless N USB Adapter TL-WN823N V1 - I have got as far as inserting driver to Linux kernel using "sudo modprobe 8192cu" but get "ERROR: could not insert '8192cu': Device or resource busy". So how do I get round this? I have compiled the driver and followed instructions from TP-Link, and checked that the files / modules were created and in the expected directories. But not fluent in UNIX/Linux (just read beginner tutorials yesterday), so do not know how to find out which Device/resource is busy and how to end it. Any help appreciated.
