    Wifi adapter for raspberry pi b+

    Hi guys. My wifi adaptor which i am positive i had running, which originally pi purchase for my laptop gave up the ghost. I bought another, but that only seem to work on my laptop foe a while, but not the pi. But that died, but lucky i am getting a replacement sent to me.
    I am looking for a very cheap adapter, and looking for one with an aerial for better coverage. I have been searching ebay, and I have been looking at this model.

    ebay.co.uk/itm…8b9

    Can any one confirm if this works with the pi? Believe i am looking for one with a ralink chip in it.
    I appreciate your experience. Just look for a really cheap one, and don't mind waiting a bit.

    Thanks for your advice Lee

    Hi Lee,

    Who is your ISP?

    I ask because I have had varying results with cheap wifi adapters (from same supplier) based on connections with Sky and Talk Talk.

    Ultimately the ones I bought (3 of them) all worked but 1 (mine as luck would have it) was the most irritating and I ended up connecting to the router via Ethernet. The other two I bought however performed well for about 6 months or so.

    The ones I used were either these or very similar:
