  • This low cost, highly reliable wifi dongle is supported in Raspbian and other Raspberry Pi / Linux distributions. This Raspberry Pi mini wifi dongle has a very small form factor and fits most Raspberry Pi cases. The dongle is fully compliant with Linux and works right out of the box: no setup, drivers, or other configuration needed.

  • Well there’s always the cost isn’t there? Both the offical Raspberry Pi WiFi dongle and ThePiHut dongle are £6, but the best price I can find for an Edimax is £8.23 from Amazon.

    Well firstly, Edimax signal strength data can’t be compared with the others, which is a bit of a nuisance. Edimax was my favourite wifi dongle for a long time because it had the lowest power consumption in my tests.

  • In each location the Pi was placed in such a way that it would be possible to exchange the wifi dongle without moving the Pi. This is quite important because the orientation of the dongle can make a large difference to the reported signal strength. I wanted all the results to be truly comparable. You can test this with your phone and WiFi Analyser. If you flip it from horizontal to vertical, I can almost guarantee you’ll get a change in signal strength.
