Having failed to get my wifi dongle to work (it was fine attached to the laptop but I'm not sure of it's pedigree or spec!) I sought help from the forum and m0aur (many thanks to you) kindly advised "They need a Dongle driven by the Realtek RTL8191SU Chipset - Ten a Penny!". For the record I bought this one complete with aerial which works a treat, connecting instantly to my Netgear (Sky) router. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WiFi-Wireless ... 43a5381c68 I have no relationship with the supplier other than as a satisfied customer, and can't promise the dongle will work with your setup, but offer the input for any currently suffering similar frustrations to mine.

That's good, as I have ordered one.

Unfortunately, Mr Wang has about a three week delay "due to the Chinese New Year", so despite my ordering it a couple of weeks ago, it is still sitting in a box in China.....

It's a long time now since the new Cocktail dongle was promised, and I expect the OP wanted to actually have a useable device now. I expect the official Hi-gain dongle will again be expensive, though you will not get support from Cocktail if you use a cheaper third party Realtek RTL8191SU Chipset dongle, which incidentally also work in my Mede8er, Acer and Westwern Digital media players, so a very common chipset. Many of these other devices have an active encouraged customizing community, which keeps us that like to fiddle out of mischief!
