RapidRoad USB w/Wireless Ethernet Adapter

Just got my RapidRoad USB adapter installed on my A1200; WOW, what a nice nice piece of hardware. Works flawlessly with USB memory sticks. My next purchase is hopefully a wireless USB ethernet adapter. Wondering if anyone can give me a specific model adapter that works well with the Poseidon USB Stack?

I used this one with my Deneb - worked great (found one in USA for you)

Thanks fitzsteve, but I am hoping for something wireless.

I don't think this stack supports anything wireless. I use a belkin gaming adapter to connect to my wifi network.

Well that would be a HUGE bummer. I hate having a pcmcia adapter sticking 3 inches out the left side of my computer. Please someone say it isn't so!

Well, you could use an USB-ethernet adapter in combination with an ethernet-wifi bridge.
I have both a vonets vap-11g and an asus wl-330n ethernet-wifi bridge and both work great with my amigas. On my a1200 I only used these with my pcmcia ethernet card, but it also should work with usb ethernet adapters.

No, most of the cheap ones on eBay are no good as they aren't supported by Poseidon. Can't remember which chips are supported unfortunately.

I remember that the USB 2.0 Ethernet on the Nintendo Wii works.
I have some over here so I have to look at it.

Try some ASIX-based devices.
I had one of the Apple adapters running.

I had strangely poor luck with almost all USB networking adapters. I used to have one that worked back in 2015, but I sold it. I then bought three different ones and all would be recognized by Poseidon, but none would actually work. I gave up and ordered an Xsurf/100 and put Rapidroad on there, and have never looked back! (My old USB was a Thylacine)
