if you want to get it working you'll need to let us assist you
another dongle will not do anything - it will be exactly the same, the a6 beagle bone
requires the instructions found here, you should try this and we're willing to help you. if you're unable or unwilling to follow the instructions that are required for a complex product like the beagle bone this you are welcome to return it for a full refund. this is not a beginner product - but we can and will do our best to assist you - otherwise email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll arrange a return/refund.
Now, when I had achieved this, it turns out it also works with the mini-wifi adapter from Adafruit. However (due to the weak signal strength?) it only works now and then.
My wifi adapter (http://www.adafruit.com/products/814) has been working much better after downloading the Nov 2012 driver from RealTek and compiling the module on the BeagleBone (Angstrom v2012.05 kernel 3.2.34).
