The Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with RangeBooster is the simple way to add or upgrade wireless connectivity in your desktop or notebook computer. Simply Plug & Play. £12.10 plus £2.49 p&p

£30 approx in most places. Linksys (Cisco) top quality product. Comes with 2m USB cable for ideal positioning of the adapter. I prefer the desktop type adapters to the dongle type. It's about the size of a cigarette box and comes with velcro sticky pads should you need to attach it to anything like a wall.
If you don't want to order online then only 38p more (£14.97) for instore pickup at PC World.

If you want a cheap brand for a tenner or less then find something different. This post is for those that want a quality brand and product with the ability to position it away from the PC's USB port.
Compare: Novatech £27.82 Play £31.99 eBuyer £27.92

There a wireless adapter on play.com for a tenner.

I remember when these were thrown in free with WRT54G Routers in PC World and I went back to get £40 store credit on it individually :oops:

Anyways with a long usb cable and blutac'd to a wall/window these can be quite handy when travelling etc.

Never sure if we can compare eBay prices to mainstream pricing on here?. Whats the seller like, warranty, returns procedure, condition, feedback etc? If we compared every post to eBay prices then this site would become an eBay comparison site wouldnt it as eBay can be a very cheap place to buy some things (expensive for others admittedly).

In terms of a price for this from a known retailer then this is about £10 cheaper than elsewhere and is actually a very good piece of kit. Good range and easy to use. Hot from me.

Well I can't find this any cheaper elsewhere. Seems like a hot deal to me.

Well done:thumbsup:

to me its hot or cold by what price we can get the item at now not 3 weeks ago or 2 years so if you where to go get this item now what would you pay for it ??

ebay well you never know with ebay

This is quite an old product. Check for Vista drivers before buying.

Please Note:
The model number is incorrect. The MD device is a WUSB54G NOT WUSB54GR which is the current (and Vista compatible) model. The "R" denotes the "Rangebooster" capability of the device .... supposedly 35% better transmission range. Typically around the £15-30 mark(expensive if you ask me).
