WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module For Raspberry Pi and more: Don't want to string out an obscenely long Ethernet cord to plug in your Raspberry Pi, Beagleboard, or other single board computer? Connect your device to WiFi using this wireless USB adapter! This module has been tested to work with the Pi and BeagleBone without the need to recompile any kernels. It is supported by Raspbian Wheezy, RaspBMC, OpenElec, Occidentalis, and many other Pi linux distributions. It's also tested with the BeagleBone's Angstrom distribution. Works great with 802.11b/g/n networks.

 

If using with a Beagle Bone: Because of the high power required by WiFi, a 5V 2A power adapter is required to power both the Bone and WiFi. Flaky behavior and crashes may result if this is not followed!

 

If using with a Raspberry Pi: The latest Wheezy distributions support this module out-of-the-box.You may find that you need to have a powered hub to use this adapter, so if you're having power flakiness with your Pi, try a hub!

 

Please note: The WiFi module may look slightly different than above, but all modules shipped are Pi-tested and contain the same chipset and have equivalent performance, the only difference is the plastic shell.
