I'm a happy new owner of a raspberry pi (B version, 512 mo of ram). Everything works fine (SSH link, WinSCP, Tight VNC, Apache2,Php,MySql,XBMC)

Now, I want my Rpi internet connection using Wi-fi instead of Ethernet. Which USB Wi-Fi adapters should I buy ?

I'm searching one with a tutorial (to set up on a Rpi) and no problems related (http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeriphera ... d_USB_Hubs)

This one seems okay : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6833314061

Any feedback/experience to share ?

I have had good luck so far with this edimax:

I plugged mine directly into the pi, worked right out of the box and it has run flawlessly since, which is about 4 weeks of 24/7.

Edimax 7811.

Plug in and run config utility within LXDE using Raspbian image. Easy.
