Has anyone has any experience with these two dongles? In general This site has ben good to me, but Usually i order little trinkets and cables, not WIFI adapters...

i didnt look close to the webpage, but, if the chipset of the adapter isnt supported by the caanoo's firmware, then you are mostly out of luck, unless you can find sources to a linux driver that supports the chipset.
but still then, it's not done, someone needs to compile/make/update/whatever the driver for you.

so i guess you should better buy a usb dongle which is supported.
there are two chipsets supported from what i know at the moment, somewhere listed here on the forum (dont have a link, try the search function :))

Primary you have to search for WIFI Sticks with a Ralink Chipset (especially Ralink RT2870/3070).
Only these ones should work, all others will fail with the original WIZ/Caanoo FW drivers...

If you are able to compile or find a Linux driver for your card's chipset, then you can copy the compiled driver to your SD card and run it in Termula2x with insmod. I tried this with a random card I had laying around, but I had almost no success. I gave up after a month of trying.
