    Wifi Adapters

    I've read through https://github.com/CapnBry/HeaterMet...eless-Adapters. I've been using heatermeter for many years now. I've gone through various versions. The biggest problem I have is wifi connectivity. I have an outdoor AP and still don't get the best signal. My phone, computers, etc all have a much stronger signal. With that in mind I'd like to replace my wifi dongle. Out of the supported list is there a reigning champion?

    My pi zero w works great. Outside my house, about 70' from router, thru a few walls.

    Pi zero W is as cheap as a wifi afapter. Cheaper than some.

    I've found all of the dongles on the list in the wiki to have roughly a similar range, even the one with the antenna didn't show any noticeable improvement. The antennas in the Zero W and newer 3B+ and 3A+ are pretty good, but I haven't done any range comparisons to see if they out-distance the dongles.
    I'm that HeaterMeter guy what ruins everybody's free time.
