hey,
i m a newbie and donno much abt raspberry pi although i m familiar with arduino.

i have got a wifi dongle which reads as follows...... "300M wireless USB adapter" thers also a big "n" on it.

i got the dongle in a kit by eleduino. It was a kit for raspberry pi and had the pi 2 in it so i am sure that the wifi dongle is compatible with RPi.

I need help setting up this wifi dongle.

Pls help!
Thanks in advance

My wifi setup without any problems. I "stole" the wifi dongle out of a Telstra T Box (set top box and PVR) when we upgraded and it works. Just plugged it in set the Internet password.
