You may want to spend $20 and buy a USB WiFi adapter. Perhaps someone can list here a really good one. I use several that worked right out of the box. But I am reluctant to recommend them as I know that at least 2 of them no longer do as the manufacturer recently changed chipsets.

I don't want to buy usb stick that doesn't guarantee me of a working wireless.
But i can wait for atleast 3 months.
Will there be a driver by larryfinger within 3 months? anyone?

seem to be quite a few folks in the same boat. see https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2367405
and no word from Larry, last he said he was waiting on Realtek to release the code for the driver so it can be built.
