So I have heard that any USB dongle with Realtek RTL8191SU chipset can work with Asus O! Play HDP-R1. For anyone who is interested in getting one, they are selling some cheap Realtek RTL8191SU USB dongle at monoprice.com for $15 USD.

I don't own one, so I can't comment if it works or not, If anyone decide to get one, please post back and let us know, thanks.

Please Boycott buying ASUS products until they make the improvement they said were coming on the R1, and Air.

I dropped my wireless router pants briefly to let any device in, just to try out other wireless USB dongles, from before you were born to a year old dongle that works with Windows.

D-Link DWL-122 don't work
no-name brand 802.11b don't work

Encore ENUWI-G2 802.11g works!!!! as though it is RJ45 wired. I have not tried it with 128 encryption, for I am happy with the secured RJ45 connection, so I am not going give up the USB port to go wireless.

I am leaping to conclusion that any 802.11g dongle will work. The ENUWI-G2 is available from newegg for ~$16, got mine at around $8 with shipping last year.

As to the ASUS team, it would be smart of you to maintain wireless USB dongle support on the HDP-R1, so as to set this product a breed apart from other me too product. I don't think this would hurt the sale for the HDP-R3, since the dongle occupies a precious USB slot on the HDP-R1 that many users may not care to give up. Maintaining wireless support is to reaffirm the ASUS biggots that ASUS has fantastic products, for we have ASUS products such as laptops, desktops, wireless routers, external DVD drives. Yes, plurals, for I am an old fart with many kids that also own your products. So don't deprive us biggots from all your wonderful unannounced features, keep up your good products. Anyway, when are you coming out with low power 24"+ 1920x1200 (not 1920x1080) LED monitor for around $250?

A quick google reveals that the Encore ENUWI-G2's chipset is the Realtek RTL8187B.

This matches the supported wireless adapters for the Argosy HV335T media player (along with the RTL8191SU) - specs here:  http://www.argosy.com.tw/product-detial.php?prod_id=154 

That's how I stumbled upon the wireless functionality of the R1....by plugging in my RTL8191SU based adapter that I bought for the HV335T into the R1.

Hi yuc168, I'm looking for a 802.11n based adapter for use in a Argosy HV335T, but I can't find any. Can you give me the brand and type of the adapter you are using? I assume that's a working one. Thanks in advance!

I think Xtreamer Wifi Antenna is one of the best choice to Asus: http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/3795538/art/o2media/xtreamer-wifi-n-antenna.html It must be work.
