Good WiFi dongle for PC and old Laptops – USB 150Mbps 802.11b/g/n WiFi Wireless LAN Card Adapter Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It's cheap, based on Ralink 3370L chipset. In my case it loaded files on speed up to 7MB/s (56Mbit/s) when speed connection was 72.2Mbit/s when I was near router. Looks good and small, remind of USB flash dongles
Cons:
Cheap plastic, easy to open. It has a short antenna, which is a part of board, so it has a low sensitivity and speed may be vary. One wall and you connected on 36Mbit/s.
Other:
if you'll solder new antenna it will work a way better
Bottomline:
If your laptop still has 802.11b adapter - buy this one, or better change internal network card to a new one.
