I am looking for a hostapd compatible usb dongle that I can use on the Pi in Infrastructure/master mode. The Important part is, that the Infrastructure/master mode should be able to work in the 5ghz range.

I tried to get devices form this site, but I couldn't find one capable of 5ghz Infrastructure/master mode.

i read that this one works on a Synology DSM 4.2 (DS209+II) and under 4.3 Beta (DS411+II) as a 5ghz access point with hostapd:

TRENDnet 300 Mbps Dual Band Wireless N USB 2.0 Adapter TEW-664UB (Black)

dont know if it fits with raspberry. but the chances are quite good i think.


I just bought this one from KONIG, and I purchased it via a "Configure your Raspberry Pi" web-app.

Works perfectly!
