very high failure rate with wifi dongle

by jame_s on Thu Sep 04, 2014 3:28 pm

i bought 5 of the type 814 wifi dongles and only one worked.
support asked me to post here.
what can i say? i plug the working one in, it works.
i plug a non working one in, it acts like it's working, even sees the SSIDs and tries to connect.
DHCP never picks up an address.
this is using a raspberry pi b+. i get the same results on 2 different pcs, one with linux, one with windows 7.
just seems like a bad batch to me.
i bought another batch of the type 8148 and they all worked.
