Hi,
I want to buy a WIFI dongle to add to the board, but don't know eaxtly which ones are supported? Which ones have drivers.
Can someone send me links to ebay prodcuts that are supported? Preferable USB-Wifi with external antennas. ( I need large wifi distances).
Is there a USB WIFI Router that can be connected to the board?

Thanks in advance for the help,
Adrian.

Hey Adrian,

I can recommend you TP-LINK TL-WR721N since this is the one I'm using here.

this number 721 is no more available in the wild, it is probably compatible with 722: for instance: http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-WN722N-Wireless-Adapter-150Mbps/dp/B003OQEKA8/ref=pd_cp_pc_1

I will confirm when received.
