Current suggestions for Wifi Adapaters for UP boards
Recently I ordered an Intel R200 Robotics development kit from Mouser, which came with a new UP board. I should have checked if it also came with a wifi adapter (it did not...).
I am soon going to mount this in a Turtlebot3 Waffle PI (to replace the PI and camera).
Wondering which Wifi Adapter to use. I am probably asking this after all of the horses left with the open barn door as I ordered a couple of adapters from Amazon, which should ship tonight, but...
I decided to not order the same one as the UP ships and I have on my other UP board as would prefer to not purchase another one that you have to replace the drivers to make work OK...
Likewise I have some older edimax dongles which I have used in Odroids and earlier RPI boards.
What I have ordered include:
Panda Mini Wifi 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter
I believe I saw reference to both of these either by name like Panda or by chip type RT5572.
Any better suggestion? If not I will probably start by trying the Sparklan adapter as it is higher speed...
Edit: Forgot to mention I am running Ubuntu 16.04 on this board
