I have one of these and I have to say I am very disappointed with both the range and the fact that you cant just plug these into any PC and expect them to work (what is this 2001?). You get a disc with the software and drivers on it, but only 32 bit drivers. To get it to work with 64 bit OS you need to hunt down some proprietary drivers from t'interweb :(

Mind you I only paid £3 for mine X)

top tip for more wifi bandwidth: get a simultaneous 801.22a/n + 802.11b/g/n wifi access point and use 802.11a.

I want a decent 5.0GHz dongle ... any recommendations?

How will that give you more bandwidth out of interest?

802.11a will only support upto 54Mbps which means you'll actually attain around 24Mbps. Using 'a' will only give you the advantage of less interference with it using the 5GHz range. Range will also be reduced over a 2.4GHz network, and signal degredation through walls will be greater.

If bandwidth and data throughput is your main concern, you're much better off going for a decent 300N WLAN adapter for you laptop/ desktop.

I moved to a FTTP broadband service in January and have tried numerous solutions to get as close to max data throughput as possible. I've settled in an Intel Pro WLAN adapter for my laptop and that currently maxes out at 90Mbps which is practically line speed for my link.

Use a good tool like inSSider to find the best channel for your wireless network to be on and locate and eliminate sources of interference. Whatever you buy, you'll need to put in the time to get the most of it unfortunately.

Does it come with the pound coin ? If so...Hot ! X)

LOL.................. N = up to 54 Mps on 2.4 GHz networks. ( Same as G )

For true N it requires 5 GHz, then you will see the difference!

Adapter prices for 5 GHz are around the 30 quid mark minimum.

You also need a 5 GHz swichable wireless hub.

Agreed fozey......This networking malarchy is idiotically convoluted. Why they cant just settle on ONE method that simply does what it says on the tin I'll never understand :|

Maybe Apple should do networking for dummies oO

Did you see the size? The one that you are suggesting protrudes out a lot more and if you are not careful while moving your laptop there are more chances of damage. While I have not used either of these so can't comment on the performance but the other one does have a BIG advantage being smaller in size....

Yes, I have owned both and this one is useless. Unlikely you'd be using this in a laptop as the majority of laptops have built in wireless cards.

Bought this for an old eMac I picked up recently and getting it to work with OSX 10.3.9 is a nightmare as the drivers on the disc don't work. Went to the manufacturers website via 7dayshop and still no joy. Bizarrely it does claim to support tiger.

I now have a useless tiny dongle you might say.

For true N it requires 5 GHz, then you will see the difference!
Rubbish.
As mentioned above, the 5GHz range has it's issues and the only benefit it has over the 2.4GHz range (currently) is less interference. That's only due to the under utilisation of 5GHz networks currently.
Regardless of the adapters throughput rating, you'll only ever achieve around 1/3 to 1/2 of that. So with a true 300n network (in the 2.4GHz or 5Ghz range), you'll likely to see throughput of less than 150Mbps, and you'll only see that if your router and adapter are a foot apart, with no sources of interference in the vicinity.

Ultimately, you're still better off with a hard wired network as it's much less susceptible to interference. And with gigabit ports at each end, data transfer will be much faster too.

Bought one of these to replace my 802.11g PCMCIA card on a n old XP laptop.
"can increase the coverage 3 times more and reduce "dead spots" within the wireless range."
er...no
3 feet from my router, signal strength "fair" and connection sloooow. PC card went starlight back in.

That should say *straight*. Spell-check fail:p

Owing to it's diminutive size I can't see how they can incorporate anything resembling an antennna onto the PCB which is probably why the range is rubbish.
