This device appeared in the latest email flyer I received this morning from
*** Ultra-Mini USB Wireless Lan 802.11N Adapter - 1T1R (150Mbps) ***
$7.44 for a WiFi B/G/N dongle that sticks barely a 1/4-inch out of a USB port.
(It's packaged like those tiny dongles that come with cordless mice, or
Bluetooth add-ons.) According to user feedback it works plug-n-play with
Raspberry Pi, as well as regular PCs.
Looks potentially useful for various APRS igate projects on both regular PCs
(Windows/Linux) and Raspberry Pi.
