NEW AND UPDATED – Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module: For Raspberry Pi and more #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Window-298

NEW AND UPDATED – Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module: For Raspberry Pi. 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.

Window-1-177

If using with a Raspberry Pi:
The Wheezy distribution does not support this module out-of-the-box. However, this easy-to-use script will update the kernel to support it! Also, the Adafruit Occidentalis distribution has support built in.

  1. Any idea of the current draw for this? Didn’t see it in the specs. Thanks.

  2. @jorge, that information was not supplied. it seems to work fine on the pi without an external hub, so that’s good news so far 🙂
