i was using TP link WIFI dongle (for desktop). it works on windows but not on linux (manjaro) and i think it is not supported
so i end up have to pull a cable mega_shok.gif

is there a WIFI dongle that i can use on any linux machine just by plug it in? i planning to try manjaro/ubuntu/papermint later
i have done some searching for wifi dongle at lazada, seems i have to download the driver from the manufacture support website and run some scripting to install
i can follow simple scripting as they suggest, but if any installation fail then i will be stuck cry.gif that is why i prefer plug & play

anyone can recommend me wifi dongle? give me URL from lazada / shoppe will be a great help. thanks!

You mentioned want to try with Ubuntu. No harm creating boot able USB with Ubuntu (which I have done twice before).

Basically there are two main chipsets for those wi-fi dongles and sticks so I assume something like that should really be happen anyway for whatever reason there. I do want it badly. Realtek 5370 and Mediatek 7601, I am more than sure it's already plug and play really.
