I have been pulling my hair out with firmware updates for my Rush LE pin because of the slow wireless. While hard-wiring the pin to your router seems to be the fastest option, I've tried a number of different Wi-Fi adapters and was able to only find one that worked besides what shipped with the pin.
The one that ships is the Star Tech USB150WN1X1 with single antenna.
The one that also seems to work is the Star Tech USB300WN2X2C so basically the same thing but with dual antenna and theoretically double the speed. Still won't compare to hard-wire, however. That said, if you want to try for a speed boost, check out this adapter. Unfortunately it still runs at 2.4GHz; None of the 5GHz options were recognized by the pin.
