This board is pretty easy to use on a Pi 3B+ if you are willing to read the docs and troubleshoot on the fly. Definitely not plug and play though.
Check out Alfa's docs and Github. Until the nrc7292 chipset driver is included mainline in the Linux kernel, it's going to be stuck firmly in the realm if developers and tinkerers.
