These work with Raspbian wheezy out of the box, so should be ok on
debian. I bought them from amazon japan:


Hello nigel,

i have the same wireless pen but it doesn't work with free debian driver in wheezy. And the confirmation is on this official page where you can see you need to download proprietary firmware. Maybe raspbian has some proprietary firmware already installed ( i have never checked about that )

Any of you had same problem and found something already?
I don't understand what this device is. From your example, it just
looks like a regular USB storage device, small form factor. Where is
the "wireless" function?
Sorry maybe i was not clear in explanation but the pen you see in the
ebay link was just as example about the size of the pendrive i wanted to
So i was searching for something same size but wireless and working with
debian free OS drivers.

I'm  guess that the OP means a wireless device with USB connection,
maybe something like this.

(That particular one works out of the box with Mint, as well as
FreeBSD-10.1 (though not FreeBSD-9.x)

Thank you so much Scott... i think that's what i was searching for.... i
saw same pendrive in the debian list few days ago but i couldn't find it
on sale :(
I'll buy and check if it's working and will confirm so that others will
not waste time in same research. :)
