Wi-Fi USB Adapter 802.11n

ID: 3703_0

This wireless adapter will allow your SBC to connect to a wireless network. Recommended for the PhidgetSBC3.


This 802.11n Wi-Fi USB Adapter comes with a removable 2.4 GHz antenna and a mini-disc containing the adapter drivers.

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 19.6 Mbps was recorded. This is significantly less than the 300 Mbps maximum written on the box, because wireless 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.


The Wi-Fi adapter comes in a plastic package and includes:

  • A Wi-Fi dongle adapter
  • An RP-SMA Antenna
  • A Mini-Disc containing adapter drivers


Connect the antenna to the dongle using the SMA connector, and then plug the adapter into a USB port on the PhidgetSBC. This Wi-Fi adapter is compatible with the following Phidget SBCs:
