This plug-and-play USB 2.0 Adapter allows you to connect your laptop/desktop to any Wireless networks in your home/office. This Adapter is great for those who want to equip their devices with internet access.
Having tested this module, we find that it is supported by Raspberry Pi out-of-the-box (testing operation system: Raspbian “wheezy”). Due to the limited number of the USB ports on PI, we suggest you to use a powered USB hub.
At 5 times faster than traditional Wireless-G (802.11b) networks, Wireless-N networks allow for high speed data transfers, online gaming, and lightning fast downloads. The Wireless-N USB 2.0 Adapter gives you access to all the high-speed features of Wireless-N networks on older and newer computers. Simple to setup means you can search the internet, download movies, and handle e-mails in no time.
