ANSWER

There is no list of approved USB WiFi dongles. If you want WiFi or mobile broadband connectivity, it is advisable to connect an inexpensive "mobile travel router" to the "House LAN" RJ45 Ethernet port. Make sure that the IP address range does not overlap with the instrument LAN.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

USB devices for wireless internet connections are known to cause problems with instrument communications. The software and/or drivers that support these devices may continue to interfere with instrument communications even if the device is disconnected. Also, all USB wireless device software must be uninstalled when removing the device.
