Can you give me a link to a uk website selling a USB to wireless wifi Internet adapter that will work with the raspberry pi?

Here is the community list of tested Wifi adapters. Should be able to check whatever sites you usually buy hardware from with this info.

Can you go on the amazon uk website, find one of them and then give me instructions on how to install the drivers (and in terminal or before I load the UI) and how to connect to a wifi network? Thanks

I have the following D-Link device.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/D-link-DWA-160-Xtreme-Dual-Adaptor/dp/B001HN3H2dM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1339954676&sr=8-1

In Archlinux the drivers are already installed. On Debian requires the firmware-ralink package from the squeeze-firmware non-free repository.

Would you like a cup of tea with that?

Come on be nice, the guys obviously didn't click on the link that was provided above in the thread that listed community tested hardware.
