Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module (great for Raspberry Pi)
If using with a Beagle Bone: Because of the high power required by WiFi, a 5V 2A power adapter is required to power both the Bone and WiFi. Flaky behavior and crashes may result if this is not followed! Adafruit have a tutorial for using this module with the Beagle Bone!
If using with a Raspberry Pi: The latest Wheezy distributions support this module out-of-the-box. Also, the Adafruit Occidentalis distribution has support built in. Check out our detailed tutorial for how to set up WiFi networking on the Pi You may find that you need to have a powered hub to use this adapter, so if you're having power flakiness with your Pi, try a hub!
Please note: The WiFi module may look slightly different than above, but all modules shipped are Pi-tested and contain the same chipset and have equivalent performance, the only difference is the plastic shell.
