What WiFI/BlueTooth dongles work with the Beagles?

I’m about to order a bunch of Wifi/Bluetooth dongles for my class and would like to know which ones work (or don’t work).


You could check the following links for reference to Wi-Fi Modules:


For Bluetooth support on a BeagleBone Black, I have had good luck with the ASUS USB-BT400 Bluetooth 4.0 Dongle:

From dmesg:
[ 85.785671] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM20702A
[ 85.790648] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM20702A1 (001.002.014) build 0000

$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0b05:17cb ASUSTek Computer, Inc. Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth

$ sudo hcitool dev
hci0 5C:F3:70:6E:13:4

NOTE: If you plan to use both a Wi-Fi module and a Bluetooth Dongle on a BB Black, you should use a powered USB HUB to connect these devices to the BB Black.
