Raspberry Pi Zero got connected via an old homepna USB adapter

Raspberry Pi Zero is a really tiny computer with ARM-based processor and 512 MB RAM. But how to get connected? You probably  want to update your operating system (in my case Raspbian) and surf via web browser on the Internet.

My solution is an old homepna adapter from A-Link. I found it at local flea market with price tag 1 €. The good thing is all I need to do is to attach adapter and start to use the net. Raspbian is connected immediately. Downside is the size of the adapter. However once connected you can fetch drivers for another adapter like A-Link USB54 (see picture below). After that Raspi Zero is not wired but working via wifi and can be placed anywhere.

It's a big one... but it works out-of-the-box
