Wi-Fi USB Adapter 802.11b/g

ID: 3702_0

This wireless adapter will allow your SBC to connect to a wireless network. Recommended for the PhidgetSBC2.


USB Adapter

The wireless USB adapter comes with a removable antenna and is fully compatible with 802.11b/g Wi-Fi standards. We ran throughput tests on this adapter running on the 1073 - PhidgetSBC3 using the Iperf network testing tool. At a range of approximately 10 meters through walls in our office, an average of 4.17 Mbps was recorded. Throughput depends on many variables including the performance of the computer running it and the operating system being used. You can read more of our test results here.


This compact 2.4GHz omni directional Wi-Fi antenna provides broad coverage and 3 dBi gain. It is a coaxial sleeve design with an omni-directional pattern.

This flexible antenna features a tilt-and-swivel reverse-polarity SMA connector, allowing them to be used vertically, at a right angle, or any angle in-between.


The Wi-Fi comes packaged in a resealable plastic bag and includes:



Connect the antenna to the dongle using the SMA connector, and then plug the adapter into a USB port on the 1072 – PhidgetSBC2 using the Extender Cable. If you're using the 1073 - PhidgetSBC3, we recommend the 3703 - Wi-Fi USB Adapter 802.11n.
