Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n)
Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module: For Raspberry Pi and more
Make your Internet of Things device cable-free by adding WiFi.
Take advantage of the Raspberry Pi and Beagle Bone's USB port to add a low cost, but high-reliability wireless link.
We tried half a dozen modules to find one that works well with the Pi and Bone without the need of recompiling any kernels: its supported by the Bone's Angstrom installation that comes with each Bone as well as the Adafruit Occidentalis distribution.
You'll have wireless Internet in 10 minutes! 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!
We have a tutorial for using this module with the Beagle Bone!
If using with a Raspberry Pi: The Wheezy distribution does not support this module out-of-the-box.
Also, the Adafruit Occidentalis distribution has support built in
