Default Surface Pro MacOSx/Android x86 wifi dongles.

I was looking at getting one of these and booting into android x86 for basic tasks and possibly Mac OSx and I heard everything works except for the wifi and any other connectivity. Does anyone know some good USB wifi dongles for this and possibly Mac OSx

Somewhere on the internet there is a build of android x86 for the surface that fixes the wifi problem, but I haven't tried it

EDIT: It's android-IA and it's actually a build for the Surface Pro 1, but I think it should run on the Pro 2. WiFi is supposed to be unstable however

Visit osx86 or other hackintosh site. Basically new atheros chipsets should be OK.
