    USB Wireless N Dongle

    Looking at getting a Wireless Dongle for my Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop machine.

    Seen these on E-bay which say they are Ubuntu compatible.

    Ubuntu Linux USB 2.0 Wireless N 150MB Dongle on eBay (end time 13-Jan-10 23:58:43 GMT)

    It will be connecting to a DLink DIR-635 router

    Has anyone had an experience with these on Ubuntu, are they plug and play as they say?
    Any comments are welcome.

    Thanks,

    If you can find out what the chipset inside is, you'll be able to tell if there is a kernel driver for it or if you will be installing one.

    Can't find Chipset information but have found that Manufacture is TP-Link and model is a TL-WN727N
    Not many reviews on this. I might just go ahead and get it as its just over a tenner.
