Can someone confirm for me that all I have to do is plug this into my desktop and it'll give me a broadband signal from my router?
Should do (provided that you have a modem attached or inbuilt to the router) - also be wary of the version number on these as some aren't compatible with windows 7. V1 maybe though it might install automatically under win 7 I can't say.
I tried to use this item on our new desktop running win 7 and it was a nightmare. After hours of searching for and installing drivers gave up and bought a newer Belkin. It did however work fine for years on XP.
I run on Windows XP so it should be problem free(ish) then
Only mentions WEP encryption,does anyone know if this supports WPA

Update:Just looked at Netgear specs and No it doesn't support WPA encryption

Works with backtrack.
This came with our Netgear DG834G router. Works absolutely fine on our old XP laptop as long as it's plugged in during boot up. Bit iffy if you plug it in while the laptop is on.

Our connection is hidden and WPA encrypted and works fine.
not worth £4 imo. Firstly, this is really old tech, wireless b/g, no mention of WPA in above description. Second, its a refurb.

Better off going to solwise and getting their micro usb wireless n dongle, which is tiny, supports WPA and windows 7, and is only £9.50 inc del. brand new
Whats this like for reception? I guess it wont work as good as a desktop card with a actual ariel?
Netgear also do a WG111 adapter as well as an adpater!!!:p
Be real careful buying these. They have a tendancy to overheat. I've owned two (new) and both overheated regularly. I ended up buying the 2nd to plug in whenever the other overheated.
I've had one of those for about 3 years now works sweet with anything I throw at it. Works with linux too!
I had an older version and very unreliable.... personally I'd get something newer that supports W7 and WPA encryption.

Could you recommend something please?

Working great for me on Vista (though only installed a couple of days ago). Gives a good signal even though the antenna must be tiny. It's WG111v3, and definitely supports WPA.
This listing has ended.
Yes, still available from their website, but £6.38 because they add postage. It's annoying that they insist on paypal on ebay - I don't have a paypal account (since the wikileaks brouhaha), and end up having to pay postage.
worked ok with my visa lap top , but sticks out about 3" and was always getting knocked.
the last time it packed up on me. but for £4 it was still a good buy.
