Decent Device – VAP11G USB IEEE802.11b/g Wi-Fi Dongle Bridge - Blue Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
- Easy setup once you figure out you have to plug in the usb and the ethernet cable - Dealextreme packaging protects item and mini disc (bubbled wrapped envelope + bubble wrap in the original item box - Very good price. Same item sells on Amazon for 30-40 dollars.
Cons:
- Windows only setup (incompatibilities with Bootcamp on macs that require a thundbolt ethernet adapter... this is apple's fault tho, not the device) - Slow Speed on some devices. Doesn't seem to do much harm to internet browsing and online games, but it might not be ideal for heavy duty downloading. My speed test was 3mb/s on a mac that usually gets at least 20 on my wifi network. - Didn't come with power adapter for wall, although a usb power adapter or cheap adapter will work with it -Mini disc may not work with some computers
Other:
Fast shipping, Well Packed, Decently Priced, and Useful
Bottomline:
Great purchase if you've blown your wifi card or you want something cheap to connect a device with no wifi card.
