ADAFRUIT INDUSTRIES - 814 - MINIATURE WIFI MODULE, RASPBERRY PI 5 5 2 2
Just works. I've been using this for a Raspberry Pi project in low-wifi signal areas, and it seems to work at least as well as my smartphone's wireless. It isn't as good as a desktop, but you can't expect it to be, given the size. Frankly, between the size and the fact that it just works out of the box in linux, this is a no-brainer purchase. The only issues I've seen have been transferring files over wifi; the speeds seem to drop consistently during the course of the transfer (depending on the router; I've seen it be perfectly fine on some N routers, but have this issue on others). It not a big issue, and it works well enough for most use cases; just be warned that you may not want to use this for applications where you need to transfer large files quickly. December 3, 2013
Worked great This device is great. I have been using it for roughly 6 months on my raspberry pi running Xbian and raspbmc. In both situations, it worked without any additional settings. It is quite compact and seems to be sturdy. August 9, 2013

Wi-Fi Installation

Details: 
I would like to install the Wi-Fi Adapter by the command line instructions
I entered the following
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
1. auto lo
2.
3. iface lo inet loopback
4. iface eth0 inet dhcp
5.
6. allow-hotplug wlan0
7. auto wlan0
8.
9.
10. iface wlan0 inet dhcp
11. wpa-ssid "ssid"
12. wpa-psk "password"

But is did not work. ??? The blue LED on the wi-fi adapter blinks 6 or 7 times in a cycle repeatedly, like it is waiting for something and the and all the Raspberry board communicaitons lights are off. I am missing initializing it somewhere. ...???

I just found the documentation disk that came with the little Wi-Fi Adapter. I guess I have the RTL8188cus compatible wi-fi adapter -- this folder actually has documentation I can try the other folders do not have documentation.
I'll try any suggestions you can send me
Thanks

Newark order code # 53W6285 will work on 'raspbmc'
You need to configure this, by using the Raspbmc Setting program, that you will find in the Programs section of XBMC
