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.

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.
go to /etc/network/interfaces
add to the bottom
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!
1. On File Manager, go to /lib/firmware/rtlwifi. If there is NOT a file called "rtl8188eufw.bin" carry out the following fix:
2. Download "rtl8188eufw.bin" from "https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu" (on a laptop if you cannot use Ethernet, put file on a USB and drop it on to the Rasbian desktop)
3. Input the following in the terminal "sudo cp Desktop/rtl8188eufw.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi" this will move the .bin file.
4. Carry out a reboot. from this point the LED inside the adaptor began to flash indicating it was being detected.
5. From here i followed this guide "https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/wireless-cli.md" which allowed me to connect to the wifi without further problems.
Ensure that your OS is up to date before carrying these steps out. I still gave the adapter 4 stars because with my windows 10 laptop it worked "plug and play" (and even in the pie while using RetroPie OS). the only fault is that the .bin file is missing from the Rasbian OS which inst specifically the manufacturers fault. I hope this has helped.
In the end, I followed the installation instructions on the Suntimebox website, and did the first configuration with a different wifi dongle (an older model I found lying around). After setting up wifi with this older dongle, I changed it for the New IT model, re-booted, and crossed my fingers.
It worked. It worked rather well. The New IT dongle is tiny (so it doesn't foul adjacent Pi USB slots), draws very little power (so doesn't need a powered USB hub), and has proven robust in practice (I've had it continuously running for days on end).
In many ways, this is a nice piece of kit. But it was a little challenging to install, so I'll give it only four stars.
This is a plug and play device, no need for additional drivers. Obviously you will need to setup the Adapter to be registered with your home WIFI network.
For the price this is a very capable wireless adapter. No messing around, simple and straight forward. I would recommend this to any home/ office PC user. I have had one or two issues of gaining access to my home network. After a few trouble shooting session in the Windows network manager it was soon sorted. I have had this over a year, network issues are less then I can remember.

Took a bit of configuring to get it going, but worked well once it did.
I no longer have the Pi but this was a great little receiver that seemed quite stable. Read more
