What I’m looking for is some type of USB adaptor or similar thing that I can use with a few Raspberry Pi’s to create a 802.11 ah network, but Googling hasn’t helped at all. Does anyone know how I might be able to get HaLow to work?

    Are there even devices that support 802.11ah yet? All Google shows are stories about the technology. I'm not surprised Googling hasn't helped.

  • Maybe not such is available. 802.11ah as a chip is provided on newracom.com/products that was the only I found.

This may be dated, but there are offerings now [2020] for balcony cards for the 3B+ & 4s from multiple vendors.

Here are a couple:

There are more, but I am still evaluating them for a Project I oversee. I will return with more that I think are valid as I go through them.


There is now a Raspberry Pi hat for 802.11ah on the market, made by Newracom with the NRC7292 chipset.

It is described on the manufacturer's site. Silex Technologies also makes a different Pi hat using the same NRC7292 chip, but as part of their proprietary pre-certified module.
