Was looking for a wifi PCIE card for my machine at home and stumbled onto this:

https://www.amazon.ca/Gozens-Bluetooth-Adapter-External-Antenna/dp/B00R2N6BQ0/ref=sr_1_64?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1500311653&sr=1-64&keywords=wi-fi

which is basically a db9 to wifi adapter. thought that was interesting.


If you happen to be looking for a console server, I built one on a pi3 using a USB hub and USB to serial cables:
https://www.packet6.com/configuring-your-raspberry-pi-as-a-console-server/

its cool in that the pi3 has wifi, so even in a bad network down situation, you have true out of band access.


During Amazon prime days I purchased an Asus AC-68 wifi card, avoid this if you will be using it in a windows 10 or linux system. Internet is full of complaints and problems. I went to return it today and get the next one up from it, the AC-88.. Apparently it has lots of issues too... Anyone know a good 4x4 wifi card? :)

Too bad they require a wall wart, I guess there's not enough power on
an RS-232 port to power much of anything.
