I thought this was quite a good deal as play.com were selling these for £64.99! Just ordered one today. I don't know when this deal expires but it seems to be a halloween special.

Linksys WUSB300N Wireless-N Draft 2.0 USB Adapter

Treat your PC to some Wireless-N performance this Halloween for only £11.99

The Wireless-N USB Network Adapter uses the very latest wireless networking technology, Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios, Wireless-N's "Multiple In, Multiple Out" (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections up to 4 times farther than standard Wireless-G.

With Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N, the throughput can be increased even more by using twice as much radio band, yielding speeds up to 12 times as fast as standard WirelessG.

Once you're connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet, and share files and other resources such as printers and network storage with other computers on the network, wherever you wander. At home, you can surf the web or use instant messaging to chat with friends while sitting out on the patio. You'll also be able to connect with any of the growing number of public hotspots springing up in coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels and convention centers. Your wireless connection is protected by industrial-strength 256-bit encryption. The included Setup Wizard will walk you through configuring the adapter to your network's settings, step by step.

The incredible speed of Wireless-N makes it ideal for media-centric applications like streaming video, gaming, and Voice over IP telephony, and gives you plenty of headroom to run multiple media-intense data streams through the network at the same time, with no degradation in performance. Get connected to Wireless-N, Wireless-G, and Wireless-B networks with the Wireless-N USB Network Adapter from Linksys.

High-speed Wireless-N (draft 802.11n) networking for your desktop or notebook computer
MIMO technology uses multiple radios to create a robust signal that travels up to 4 times farther and reduces dead spots
Up to 12 times faster than Wireless-G, but can also connect to Wireless-G and -B networks

I would presume so. The standard one you're talking about is the Wireless-G which is up to 54mbps. Wireless-N can get up to speeds of 300mbps. You can also get one which is 125mbps which I had before. My gf has an integrated Wireless-N on her laptop and she can download things faster than mine could!

yeah i just have a netgear one its not good ...

To the majority of people it does not really matter the speed of Wifi - as if your internet connection comes in at 8 meg - which most up to claimed 24 meg will probably reach on average - then shoving an 8 meg connection through 100 or 1000 meg wifi it is still going to make it 8 meg.

Its only sharing on your own network that will increase in speed.
#7
so u saying there is no point in buying if im only getting 54mpbs ? rather than getting 300mpbs ?

If you have a wireless router like me, then a better wireless receiver will receive a better signal from the router and hence you get more out of your internet connection. e.g. if you have a 8mb broadband with a router and a 54mbps adaptor and a Wireless-N (300mbps) adaptor, then you will get more data in from the N than the 54mbps. Also for people with thick walls or computers far away from the router then the Wireless-N will receive a full 8mbs from the router where as a 54mbps will probably only get about 40% of the 8mbs and may even disconnect regularly.

i have got a standard d-link 54mbps or 54G adapter and a 108mbps router and i get the same speed as i would have done with a rj45 - tested, no ****.

yes this router will give a better range to pick up the router but it wont suddenly speed up your internet connection, if you have a 54g router - thats the speed the pc will pick it up at and transfer.

with this adapter you can go further away from your access point.

i live in a old terraced house with thick walls - the router is in the front room bottom floor by the window, the computer is in the attic towards the garden - works a peach

So would this work say 11 or 12 houses away and if not what do i need to use my existing wireless Talktalk SmartAX MT882 Modem/Router with my lappy at about that distance?:?
#23
Well i dunno about 12 houses away unless u extend the ariel outside ...

Still a flawed argument. If your pipe is 54mb it will comfortably handle anything up to the 8mb max that your internet connection can throw at it (assuming there is not a load of other LAN traffic gobbling up the bandwidth). I have Virgin 20mb connection and regularly and quite happily get around that rate on a 54mb connection (at the right time of day!!)

Nevertheless the deal is hot for LAN connections, as someone said above - media streaming (esp once you start streaming HD) springs to mind.

And my Linksys wireless can be seen about 18 houses away - which, if you take that as a radius, probably includes upwards of 60 houses that could be using my router. They can't, as it's secured, but in theory they can... It's a (fairly old now) Linksys WRT54G using Tomato firmware.

Ordered, looks like a good deal!

Just bought one ..hot!

Bought from these guys before & happy with the service.

Well i hope it improves the speed ....

Hi guys, any chance of a little help please.

I have a desktop pc connected by wires to the modem, (virgin Broadband).

I have just bought a laptop with a built in wifi card or something.

I am waiting for my wireless router to arrive from Virgin any day now.

Would this be of any use to me, and would I plug this into my laptop or into my wireless router.

Sorry if I sound a bit thick, but this is all a bit new to me. I have read this thread and the deal page but am none the wiser, but if it's a bargain, I would like to get one :roll:

Thanks for any advice offered.

Your wireless router sends and receives signals by itself,
It wont need an adapter like this.
If your laptop has wireless, it again wont need this
and if you really want to make your PC wireless too, then yes you could consider this as an ex-employee of Virgin, they only dispatch Wireless G routers, so the card itself wont take advantage of its extra speed.

However for the price, and if you REALLY want to make your desktop PC wireless. This is a good choice

(I would keep the PC wired though)

to be honest NO......

Thanks to you both for your advice, all too often I buy things I don't really need because they are a good price.

Now I can spend the money I have saved not buying this on something else I don't need :)

Thanks again for the quick reply.

You won't need it. Your laptop is covered with its internal card and your desktop connects directly to the router. It's only worth considering for your desktop, if you want to put the modem and router further away from your desktop, say in another room, and not have a network cable trailing all over the house.

no 64 bit drivers on their web-site and no confirmed release date for them

The improvement would be through MIMO which would not be as high as you said. Also most people don't live in houses large enough or with walls that will block signals sufficiently to look for that much improvement in signal.

If you have thick walls - you can replace the antennas with high gain ones. However if you live in an older stone built house the one way you can use a network really is wired or through the mains.

My router is in my loft two floors above me in an entirely brick built house (inside walls too) taking the connection speed wirelessly - and taking the connection speed when plugged into the downstairs phone line directly shows virtually identical speeds (1 - 2% difference over ten tries).

Its a Kcorp Gold G+ 125meg router in the attic with a 9db high gain antenna that was used for the tests and a directional Fonera antenna and their own router that lets me use VOIP when I walk to the local shops.

Wow Super Hot! Just Ordered My One!

Anyone looking to improve the actual speed of their ADSL rather than wireless should try fitting one of these.
