Product Description

The Wireless USB 11N Nano Adaptor 802.11N (WiFi Dongle) is the perfect solution for getting your Raspberry Pi on the internet wirelessly. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, the 802.11n's MIMO (Multi Input, Multi Output) actually uses these reflections to increase 4 times range of 802.11g and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. It complies highly with IEEE802.11g/IEEE802.11b standard, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N, the speed can be increased even 3 times of 802.11g by using twice as much radio band. This nano WiFi dongle utilises the Ralink 5370 Chipset.

This was bought for a Raspberry Pi. Driver-wise it worked out of the box.

There are huge delays when using this dongle. That's because of power saving that's enabled by default. To fix that you'll have to run: iwconfig wlan0 power off

This can be added in /etc/network/interfaces as: wireless-power off

After that it works like a charm.

Got this with my PI. It works well at close distances, however if you want to make sure you don't run into problems. Here's two things to do to solve wifi drop outs and timeouts:

First:
go to /etc/network/interfaces
add to the bottom

wireless-power off

This disables wifi power management, I found without this the wifi is much slower due to power saving.

And also do this:

Go to /etc/ifplugd/action.d/ and rename the ifupdown file to ifupdown.original
Then do: cp /etc/wpa_supplicant/ifupdown.sh ./ifupdown
Finally: sudo reboot

Now it works perfectly without any dropouts or timeouts!

Works as expected in my Raspberry Pi 2 on the 2.4GHz band, works without drivers on raspbian, but it isn't dual band so it doesn't detect my 5GHz network. Range is good, the only issues I had were when the pi was undervolted (rainbow square in top right of display)- connection kept dropping out but that's hardly the fault of the component. New power supply sorted that out and have had no issues since. Ultra low profile, sticks out a little but that's so if you have a case it won't interfere with the fit. Overall very happy with it for a fiver.

Does the job, works with PI 2 although despite what previous comments say. I used it with Openelec and OSMC Kodi releases.
Tried to watch a full hd blu-ray quality movie streamed from my NAS and could not get to work properly, utterly stuttering. Transfer rate is really, really slow with that device. With the edimax device i had before i could stream a HD movie with no trouble.

Lost hours trying to understand where the stuttering came from...Buy cheap, Buy twice...

This item barely showed sign of life. Alternative branded adapter communicated strongly. In addition this item was a very tight fit and needed some determination and care to remove it from a Raspberry pi A. Be aware that purchasers are obliged to pay for return of this item to New IT and refund of return cost is at their discretion. I got no refund of cost of return and am therefore out of pocket for an item that was not fit for purpose.

Unit is excellent for short range use in normal home. A bit lacking in output power for slightly longer range

It worked for me after some fiddling. Here is my working config (replace WirelessName and WirelessPassword by your setup SSID and wireless password. wireless-power off turns off power management which improves stability and performance) -

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto wlan0
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "WirelessName"
wpa-psk "WirelessPassword"
wireless-power off

I wasted more than an hour trying to get this to work but it would not connect my raspberry pi to the wifi. Replaced it by an edimax unit which connected immediately.
