Simple and works well – USB 2.0 2.4GHz 802.11n 300Mbps Wifi/WLAN Wireless Network Adapter Reviews

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

Pros:
Seems to work pretty well. Great that it has an external RP-SMA connector.
Cons:
Unit is maybe a little flimsy but it doesn't worry me.
Other:
I had trouble connecting to my wireless n router. Unsure if it was because of this unit or not - I connect to it with my laptop fine. Remember that wireless n is draft, therefore not all devices are compatiable with each other. This unit connects to my wireless g access point fine though (my main one so I didn't try the wireless n router properly - getting rid of the n router anyway because I don't use it).
Bottomline:
Works well, having a USB wi-fi dongle with RP-SMA on it is great. I didn't bother with the driver CD - Windows Update (in both XP and Win 7) worked straight off.
