I got an LB Link - BL-WN151 and it is a pain on the orange pi. It won't work at any tries. I need to rebuild the kernel etc. Is there any dongle that is supported by the orange pi? Or at least by loboris images? Can someone give a model that I can find on ebay?

I have 2 of those and this one is overpriced. Chipset is Ralink - 3070 for 150Mbit, 3072 for 300Mbit. There is no way to output 2W with this. Standard 100mW, atleast with regular driver, but range is good. The problem with this modules is crappy miniUSB connector, which itself is bad, but combinned with bad USB cable (most of chinese cables) will couse you a lot of troubles, untill you find the reason. 3072 model, i use for AP with the only really good USB to mini cable i have and still i have to re-plug and restart at least once on week or two. 3070 model i use for client, but i had to modify it, to make it usable, with normal USB (see attachment).
But i don't recommend those modules for regular client mode, they are too unhandy and power consuming. If you use Armbian, almost all realtek chipsets have to work. Most of tiny 150Mbit modules are with this. I tried this one, which is 300Mbit - RTL8192EU and it worked in OpenElec Opi port, not shure about Armbian because this thing mechanically broke in the meantime, so be careful with tight USB ports. But driver installation was possible in regular Linux.
