Best specs for an USB Network dongle - N+ gives you what you expect after a wireless connection when none onboard. It states RRP 59.99 lol, I just saw one at amazon at 40 quid, 30 at eBay; similar prices anywhere else for BNIB. In stock and free delivery as usual!!! Quidco as well.

HOT for me!! Just ordered one, now just hope it works with this stupid Virgin Superhub.

Any views on how good this is and whether it is windows only (I often use ubuntu)? (googled but the name is not very distinctive to struggled to find reviews for this particular version)

I have one and its pretty good. Well worth the money!

I have one and it keeps dropping the signal but then maybe i have been unlucky. I also have their wireless modem which is very good

I have the previous version of this and it worked faultlessly until I converted my network to wired. Good piece of kit at a good price but a wired gigabit network is so much better for performance and security.

Apparently the CD driver isn't Windows 7 compatible, but can be downloaded from the Belkin website. Anyone been through this?

Generally very good reviews

just ordered for £15.99.

ordered nice!

Would this work on the wd tv live?

That could be why then I shall try this and see how it goes.

Its a lot of money to pay for a USB wireless adaptor when you think a N router can be had for less

My understanding is that the price is because it's a dual-band (2.4 and 5GHz). BT Hub 3.0 is single band so make sure to use a compatible router otherwise it'd be waste of money.

You're quite right, but don't forget you can put that usb dongle in your pocket and use it wherever and with any compatible pc you like, unless you fancy carrying your router in your backpak

Well mine finally turned up and none of the PCs we've got will see it in a usb slot!! Not impressed at all:( Going to have to send it back for a replacement.
