The issue here is that I need to buy a WiFi dongle for my new RPi. However, in the local market there are limited choices. I found:

  1. LB-LINK BL-LW05-AR5

  2. D-Link DWA-123

  3. ASUS USB-N13

Which one should I use? Please consider that I may use RPi as Access Point in my project so the dongle should support that.

hostAPd will only work with the D-Link (RT5370) and the Asus (RT3072), so you should avoid the LB-Link (RTL8188CUS)

I'm interested in your results too!
