Another day, another Yard Sale.
I’m selling about 100 DWA-160 D-Link USB WiFi adapters (Atheros).
These are compatible with Raspberry Pi and do not require an external power source. And are obviously compatible with Linux (
Some of these adapters are new, others are used. Two different generation mixed (see the WPS button in the picture).
These adapters can be used in Master (Acces Point) mode using hostapd, but certain Macbook Pro’s (Broadcom driver afaik) make the driver/firmware crash; last time I checked (1.5 year ago) this bug was known but not solved (yet).
Price: €5/piece (discount possible on bulk).
Contact: [email protected]
Located in Antwerp, can ship.
Invoice is possible if required.
