Which wifi dongle should I buy?



  • I am trying to use Recalbox on a Dell Optiplex that does not have built-in wifi. After some trouble getting a RealTek RTL8188EUS dongle to work, I have decided to just get another one.

    Before I order, I have been looking through the compatibility list:
    https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Compatibility-(EN)

    The only one on that list that will work with v4.1 has two antennas:
    https://www.amazon.com/Netis-Wireless-Long-Range-High-Gain/dp/B006THNH7Q

    is the assumption that anything from a prior version should also work on a newer version?

    The Compatibility List is confusing, since for example it will list "RT5370" as working for one device, but not working for another. And most devices don't list the chipsets so it is unclear what to look for.

    Or some devices don't have the same chipset mentioned on the compatibility page. Like the Ourlink Wifi Adapter here is not "RTl8192cu" according to the q/a:
    https://www.amazon.com/OURLiNK-600Mbps-Wireless-Network-Computer/dp/B011T5IF06

    I am looking for someone to please tell me that they have tried a particular wifi dongle and have confirmed that it works with 4.1 - preferably one that is small.

    If need be, I will order the one with two antennas, but looking for other options.

    Thanks!
