Question UBS WI-FI CARDS for OpenBSD. Any recomendations?

Hello guys!

Well, I need a USB Wi-Fi card.

I was trying with a ATHEROS TP-LINK TL-WN722N.

But, it exists a bug with athn-firmware in OpenBSD for i386 architectures! So I can't use that USB Wi-Fi card.

What USB Wi-Fi cards do you recommend?

I would like to have one that be portable and potent.

           TP-Link TL-WN821N v4
           TRENDnet TEW-648UBM
I don't know about "potent", but I use many USB dongles supported by this driver. They are reasonably reliable & cheap.

OpenBSD makes mining for wireless information easy. Simply issuing the command:

$ man -k wireless

...will list all supported wireless drivers.

Thank you!

There are a lot to try! That urtwn firmware is the boss! What can't he do?

I hope to make a good card choice.

Potent ≅ powerful, strong, forceful.

The Edimax EW-7811Un and TRENDnet TEW-648UBM are both easily sourced on Amazon and eBay. I use the Edimax EW-7811Un with my machines.

I have an old Linksys WUSB54GC (second-hand from local thrift store) which works fine with the rum driver for the ralink chipset, and it does not need to load firmware. However nothing beats urtwn-based usb dongles in regards to small size or low price.

You could also have a look at (urtwn-based) EDUP EP-N8508GS or EDUP EP-N8508, which can be ordered at www.dx.com for a few dollars/euros shipping included.

Anything made in the last 10 years will support WPA2 Enterprise.
