    Can someone using Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 and a USB Wi-Fi dongle please tell me the exact model you are using? I bought a Netgear WNA3100 which has the appropriate chipset but it is having issues while using MacCycle. It looks like it is changing the mac address using "getmac" on the cmd line but I am not getting new streetpass data. And sometimes it renames Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi 2 and then breaks it altogether. If someone can tell me and exact brand, model that works, I'd rather try it with that next. Most people just say anything with the specific chipset but I want to know a model from someone who has it working. Thanks.
