Will this device connect my cctv dvr to my wifi at home as both units are too far apart for a wired connection

Asked by: Mark1968
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item in your intended application, as this is not the manner for which it was designed to be used. If the units are in the same property but too distant for cabling then a powerline solution may be a better idea.

Will this product work with the Raspberry Pi, and if so, are drivers easily available? Also, we use an enterprise Wi-Fi system which uses WPA2-ENTERPRISE with AD username AND password authentication. Do you know if this will be compatible?

Asked by: Someone7272
Enterprise mode is not supported The unit supports the following encryption standards only Support 64/128 bit WEP, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Lists of confirmed working network adaptors suitable for Raspberry Pi can be found online on many websites for example. You could cross reference the units that work to find a device that supports Enterprise standard of encryption.

I have an  EE 4g dongle, no ports that provides good  wireless signal for phone, tablets and sky box. What device can I buy to bridge to my CCTV DVR that has only an Ethernet slot. Thanks

Asked by: Dave
You could use a wireless bridge attached to the CCTV system however Mobile internet is wholly unsuitable for use with a CCTV system.

I have two sky boxes that have Ethernet ports but are not positioned in the same room as the router. Would this adapter plug into the sky box and give me wireless access ?

Asked by: richchap24
A USB adapter would not be suitable as the Sky box would not recognise such a device. However you would be able to use a device like the one below as an access point an connect to the Sky box via Ethernet cable. Another option would be to use powerline adapters which can be found at this link;
