Beware V4 Chipset

KYLE B., Newegg
17 November 2013
  • Summary: I wish there were some way to know the version and chipset of wireless adapters before purchasing. It's very frustrating and time wasting to expect a certain radio and get junk.
  • Pros: Cheap.
  • Cons: Bought this at another store thinking it was an Atheros chipset. Turns out version 4 switched to a cheap Realtek RTL8192CU chipset. The speed is unacceptably slow 3.94 Mbits/sec on Linux kernel 3.12 measured with iperf. Binary drivers are not a solution for Linux. Look elsewhere and get an adapter with a good radio.

The newer version isn't compatible with Trisquel.

Andrew E., Newegg
1 October 2011
  • Summary: If you are looking for the older version of this stick, you probably won't find it here. You could try replacing your internal wifi card though. See h-node for a list of compatible cards that you can buy on newegg.
  • Pros: wifi on a stick!
  • Cons: I was looking for this model, but the v2 not the v3.1, since the chipsets are different. The older chipset is compatible with a fully free distro of GNU/Linux, but the newer one is not. I got the newer one, so I had to return it.
