Even if this was a 3g dongle then why would the fact that you can't receive signal make it cold?

The problem with the confusion of this post is the word 'dongle' (actually, I was around in the eighties when a dongle meant a piece of hardware necessary to unlock a piece of software). If the OP had written 'Orange USB Wireless Network Adaptor' then I'm sure we'd have less confusion, as at this point in time, it's not a 'dongle' in the modern sense of the word.

Not a criticism, just an observation.

Actually, just clicked through the link, it's not the OP's fault, it's dumb ass Orange's fault, incorrect description on their part. Apologies to the OP.

Wi-Fi USB stick to connect to your Wireless Router at home, you're probably most likely to use it with a Desktop machine as 99.9% of modern laptops have built-in wireless.

Having said that, I picked up a Wireless-N USB stick (i.e. 150Mbps) brand new from eBay for £4.89 delivered last week, so this one is cold for me I'm afraid.

I also feel remember the days of using dongles for software! This is a great offer, I've been looking at cheap brand ones on eBay and for a couple of pound extra i'd much rather buy a branded more reliable 'WiFi adaptor'....hot! Any Windows 7 support people?

For anyone to avoid confusion, this is just some generic WI-Fi USB Dongle that receives B & G signals (not n compatible), that happens to have an Orange logo stamped on it. The same sort of thing can be bought cheaper on Ebay, or as another poster has stated here a Wireless-n capable one available for around the same price.

Do you know the original equipment manufacturer here (OEM)? What chipset this is? How many "brands" of chipsets there are out there that are "logo-ed" by various businesses?

I think you will find that these are "dongles in the modern sense of the word"... It is in no way an incorrect description - a dongle is basically anything that kind of shaped that plugs into a USB slot.

It's not a 3G dongle.

At least security dongles aren't parallel like the bad old days. Or not so old in some cases (_;)

£6.99 for a wifi N dongle @ 7dayshop.
#24
we got one of these when i moved the old desktop from back room to front. it was going to be located away from the livebox.
as first it seemed to be hit n miss connecting and would disconect every now n again. however since moving the livebox it seems to have reduced this happening.
signal pick up is not as good as say my ipod touch using wifi. in same location.
speed on ours is upto 54/56mbps whichever makes sense.

Love it...'that kind of shaped'. Now we know where we stand with scientific descriptions like that!

I've never heard anyone call a USB flash drive a dongle. Anyway, post #22 proves my point, it still being interpreted as a 3G dongle to which the term DOES refer to in the modern sense of the word.

Has anyone tried this on a Sony Bravia LCD Internet Ready TV and see if it works?
#27
Is this in the standard windows driver database ?

I.e. does it install on XP/Vista/7 without needing the driver CD ?

Dongle is not just reserved for 3G, as mentioned earlier in this thread alot of software especially licienced for a certain number of users uses a dongle plugged into the server to control the liciencing, we use it on at least three systems in work. I also used to make 'Dongles' (specialist cables) to allow different pieces of hardware talk to each other.

Sorry for any confusion

I found it by accident and thought it was a good deal.

If it isn't what I thought it was ... sorry !:|

Good question - I want to know this myself, and is it better to get this or the N-variety?

Not used internet TV so have no idea...
