Just as a 'tail-end' to this thread, I'll endorse both the NetGear WNA3100M and the TP-Link TL-WN725N 'nano' N150 adapters.

I've been using both of these for quite some time, across a number of Puppies, with kernels ranging from k3.0.66 all the way up to k4.9.13. Both work perfectly, and, as Jefro says, the chip is ultimately what determines the driver required.

Both use RealTek drivers; the WNA3100M using the good old rtl8192cu (which has been in the kernel since, like, forever), and the TP-Link the somewhat newer r8188eu.....first sighted in the k3.14.20 kernel. Neither displays any signs of 'drop-out', and both connect very readily.

Both highly recommended.....but do make sure that the TP-Link is the v2. variant, as the v1. used an awkward chip which never really gained much in the way of Linux support.
