Need wifi network adapter suggestion, N2+

I purchased an Odroid N2+ from Ameridriod along with a wifi dongle. The dongle works, but is slow. I want to replace it with a USB 3.0 network adapter which has a decent gain antenna attached to it for better speed. I’m not sure which chipsets are supported and secondly, most of the adapters I look at online don’t actually list the chipsets.
Could anyone please provide

  1. a list of supported chipsets and
  2. a list of any actual usb 3 wifi adapters that you’ve tried and which work that have high gain antennas

BTW, I’m using v19.4.
Also, it would be nice if the suggested adapter(s) would work with v19.4 and with v9.x.

I forgot to state that my internet speed is 200 meg.

I used this one: TPLink Archer T3U Plus/RTL8822BU-aml only using USB 2.1 - #3 by hder

It’s got a nice long antenna but in my experience still limited to something like 150Mbps.

Would this be compatible? I am in the same boat and want a faster adapter.

Did you have to compile the driver or were you just able to add the switch somewhere to force it into usb mode 3?

I did this and it worked:

From the Github:

You can try use modprobe 88x2bu rtw_switch_usb_mode=1 to force the adapter run under USB 3.0. But if your adapter/port/motherboard not support it, the driver will be in restart loop. Remove the parameter and reload the driver to restore. Alternatively, modprobe 88x2bu rtw_switch_usb_mode=2 let’s it run as USB 2 device.

Notice: If you had already loaded the moduel, use modprobe -r 88x2bu to unload it first.

If you want to force a given mode permanently (even when switching the adapter across devices), create the file /etc/modprobe.d/99-RTL88x2BU.conf with the following content: options 88x2bu rtw_switch_usb_mode=1
