Wireless USB Keyboard

by davidh on Sun Aug 26, 2012 3:31 pm

Hi

Will the dongle for the Miniture Wireless USB keyboard with Touchpad - ID:922 also allow me to get onto the internet or will I need an additional wifi adapter like the Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module: ID : 814 For Raspberry Pi and more ...

Cheers
David

If I use the 5V 1A (1000mA) USB port power supply - UL Listed - ID: 501 to power the Pi will that be enough for the two wifi dongles?

we do not believe the pi would run two wifi dongles at once (no plan to test that one, but let us know how it goes if you try!)

I'm asking because I know you don't have a no return policy and you guys really try to work with people if something is wrong but I don't know how this would apply in my case.

hi david,

we don't support 2 wifi adapters, we don't think it will work - we don't think you should purchase 2 for this purpose, but feel free too!

thanks,

I think I will take your advice and not take 2. Shouldn't a wifi adapter for internet and bluetooth for keyboard should work together ok.

we do not think bluetooth works with the pi yet, we have not tested and do not sell a bluetooth product for it at this time. but you want to see what the folks over at http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/ think.
