    ELEMENT14 - WIPI - Frequency RF:2.4GHz 4 5 2 2
    A WiFi Dongle that just WORKS! I have tried many different USB WiFi dongles for my various single board computers over the last few years. This is one of the single most transparent connections to WiFi that I have found, it just WORKS! I am in a particularly difficult environment, using an Enterprise WiFi which requires login each time the Internet is accessed. When I plugged in this dongle and powered up my new RPI 2-B board, to access the Internet, it immediately connected with the Enterprise WiFi and I was able to input my credentials. I am very pleased with this device and highly recommend it! May 12, 2015
    Ralink2800 driver Works with Raspbian. Uses rt2800 driver. Did not work with berryboot. Not bad. Wish docs stated it was based on raiink chip. Not a bad thing, just need details in a spec sheet. Also, as of 1/11/13, the pic of a red side car board is WRONG! This is a very petite USB dongle. January 12, 2013

    It's a relatively cheap price and a great form factor for embedded-type applications, but there are lots of adapters out there with similar size and price.

    A: 
    Using this for some prototyping of data gathering setups. Currently pushing around 75 feed through two concrete walls with great signal strength in a fairly electrically busy environment.

    I have not pushed it to the limit yet, and as with most Wi-Fi parts, your mileage may vary.

    The range is the maximum usable distance between the WiFi access point and the WiFi Adapter, hope this helps.

    In order to turn on/off the power management follow the below steps:
    1) Open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl+Alt+t
    2) Now type: 'iwconfig' and press Enter: (‘iwconfig’ will then list all the available wireless devices connected to your system)
    3) sudo iwconfig wlan0 power on

    Hi!

    I was looking at:

    "RASPBERRY-PI - RASPBRRY-MODB-512M - MODEL B - ASSEMBLED BOARD ONLY"

    The phrase "assembled board only" caught my eye. Do you carry components and boards to DIY? Or do you just mean I need to consider getting a power supply and other peripherals separately?

    A: 
    "Assembled Board Only" means here the kit comes with only board (assembled) and you need to buy other accessories like SD card, power supply, supporting HDMI cables, keyboard ..etc

    sorry we do not sell component and board separately for DIY.
