Pros: The tiny size is fantastic.

Cons: The reception is not good at all. I have two wireless adapters and did a comparison b/w the two.

The one i'm replacing (a Hawking something or other) is wireless G and I want to upgrade my network to N.

The only place the two are even comparable (in download speed) is when the computer is right next to the router (and i mean right next to it).

Upstairs, where I will normally be computing, this thing can barely even connect and has frequent drops.

Because i don't like things sticking out of my laptop, i went ahead and got the Diamond Wireless-N Range extender -- which is great btw.

Running same test, yes there is improvement, but where my previous G adapter gets something around 24Mbs, this one only does about 15-16. And it is only about 6 feet away w/ direct line of sight.

My signal strength is pegged at 100%, but the results are poor relative to the Hawking adapter (which is slightly larger)

Don't buy unless you are going to be in the same room as
