View Full Version : [ubuntu] Best Wireless N USB Adapters for Ubuntu

July 3rd, 2009, 06:21 PM
Hi all,

I have a D-Link DIR-655 wireless router and I need the best, most hassle-free wireless N adapter I can get for Ubuntu. I have an unsecured network so it does not have to do WEP, WPA, WPA2 or anything of the sort. Any recommendations?

Yes thank you for the response. I have been looking at this page for a while now, however, it is very hard to tell which are wireless N and which are not and I am not willing to google each one just to see if they are N. I was sort of looking for some personal experiences with solid N adapters. Maybe there should be another column on the wiki specifying which wireless networking standards (b/g/n) are available on each card. On the other hand, the wiki seems to be for people working the other way around, already having a card and checking to see if it works well on Ubuntu.

You ought to do it in the opposite direction.

Find the usb N adaptor and then check if it's working well or not.

D-Link DWA-130
D-Link DWA-140

seem to work fine according to it.

Of note: Wireless N is still just a draft. Meaning you could buy this now and not have compatibility with future and past wireless N.
