    There is no such thing as a supported USB NIC, much less wireless.

    But on the wifi side things are much worse, there's a difference between a wireless interface, and a radio that can be used as a WAP. It's hard enough to find wireless cards that can be a WAP to start with, but to my knowledge there isn't a single USB device on the market that can act as a WAP. That's on a hardware level, nothing Untangle or anyone else can do about it.

    Besides, why bother? Unifi AC-Lite's are better than the best card you can get, and are $80 on Amazon.

    Thanks for the info. The idea was to minimise the number of devices in use as the Wi-Fi range needed to be only a few metres so didn't require a strong broadcast signal.
