Any ideas of hardware being most compatible?
A USB webcam would no doubt be easier to use

I chose the ASUS USB-N10 because of its size and the fact that it works out-of-the-box with Arch. It uses the r8712u module which is already installed with the distro.
I would like to find some dirt-cheap USB camera stick that will be working with Raspberry Pi! Thanks
