Post#1 » Mon May 20, 2019 10:15 pm

All of my dongles are for windows. I need to know a good low cost dongle that will work with my pi.

I have used these before on a Pi Zero before the newest Pi software came out. It worked fine and was inexpensive.

Was it easy to install? I have no clue how to install drivers on my pi.

Yea, the dongle is already setup to work on Linux so I didn't have to install any drivers. It just worked and showed up as a Wi-Fi port on my Pi.

I've been using the adapter at this link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003M ... UTF8&psc=1 since 2017. It works perfectly and was around $8 shipped.

With the new pi out, I just might get the 4 gig model instead of worrying about adding a wifi card?

In either case ty for the help guys.

doesnt seem to be plug and play for me. It wont even light up like it should. put it into my pc and it does light up. not sure if my pi B is the issue as you mentioned using a zero?
