easy and affordable WiFi adapter for Debian 10 on a Dell Optiplex 9010?


I doubt my abilities to do much configuring. I did install the non-free version of Debian, though. Also, I think paying more than $30 may be too much.
A YouTube video suggested 802.11AC Dual Band USB Wireless for my particular PC, but that wasn't taking Linux into consideration.
Now I am using an ethernet for that PC, but do have a router from the internet company.

Alfa AWUS036NHA - Wireless B/G/N USB Adaptor

No, even $40 is not too much, but likely can obtain even more cheaply (if not by much)!

Have owned an AWUSA036NH for years without problem. Highly recommended!

If you have ethernet then I'd think just leave it.


I can't imagine spending too much for a usb wireless nic. https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=linux%...er&Order=PRICE Bet one of them under $10 would work. Might have to add in a driver.

I forget the name of the company that sells stuff directed toward linux use.
