It works. – Wifly-City 800mW High Power 802.11G/B USB Wireless/Wifi Adapter Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-> Works with Ubuntu Linux out-of-the-box -> Performance is good, seems to be more stable when paired with distant AP's -> is absolutely amazing when paired with sku.25292 (picks up 3 AP's by itself, and over 20 with the antenna).
Cons:
-> only includes a small antenna. 800mW power only helps transmission, but not reception. -> funky 2-headed USB cable (I guess it draws more power than one port can supply?) -> feels kinda light and plasticky, cheap
Other:
-> gets noticeably warm when in use
Bottomline:
two of these units, and two of sku.25292, and you can communicate over an enormous distance
