I was just browsing and found this. it seems very small and comes with a software cd too. Its nothing special, just the size that amazes me compared to normal USB dongles. Plus the price is very good considering it's got 802.11N technology, so very fast.
Have a browse if ur interested. i've just ordered one for my spare computer as i kept stepping on the belkin dongle. ( now even cheaper - was about 8.89 now at 8.20 approx)

Such a small footprint means that the antenna must be very small so I'd be worried about reception, but it's a good price and the tiny size would be very handy.
When you receive it let us know what the reception is like!

Because the regular sized ones would struggle to fit through the front door?

I'm in need of a new dongle, mine decided to break on me other night. anyone know if this one is any good?

not yet. not received mine yet. i will post if the reception is any good. i realise it will have a small antenna but my computer is in the same room as my wireless point. just wrong end of room. so i'm not far from my internet. this might be useful for laptops if ur built in wireless packs up. mine did a couple of years ago.

Don't be silly. If the reception is good, these will be great when plugged into a laptop to replace a broken wlan or just to upgrade to an 'N' network connection. Far better than the usual two or three inch adapter that's so easily broken when used in a laptop.

Exactly the same form as the Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard ones I have. They're brilliant, taking away the risk of snapping the dongle off in the socket when you (inevitably) catch it on something.

the size of the antenna is in direct relation to the size of the wave length. SWR signal to wave lengh ratio.
Speed of light % by Frequency = Wavelength in Metres
Ie,
0.3 % 2.4gHz = 0.125 metres (12.5cm) % by 4 to get 1/4 wave....0.03125 metres or 31.25mm
this can be coiled or straight

Ferr nice!

I have a logitech receiver like Doobs and have not had any problems with it. I also have a DealExtreme mini bluetooth receiver which works well.

you on your phone?
if this has a large enough antenna thats irrelevant as why would you need more than enough other than to snap it off for a laugh?

have the small one from Play.com and that was a great buy a few months ago, a bit bigger than this but great signal strength all through the flat! Should be fine if you dont live in a bunker!

if my English bad its because i am dyslexic sorry.l

i meant the % which i was reading as percent - thought was a symbol selection type thing on phone.
been so long since i have seen ÷ never thought you meant ÷ by % so used to /

er sorry for ramble lol

will this work with the "WD HD tv"? (not the Live version)

I very much doubt it. Support isn't added very quickly.

Anyone know if this will work on a Mac running OSX 10.3.9?

Thanks

can you use these to do away with cables on the printer ?

that has to be offloading a bunch of the processing onto the computer though, so it will probably slow things down more than a standard one.

my laptop currently has built in wireless, its near 2 years old, do u guys think this would speed the internet up on it?

unlikely. unless you have a router that can transmit faster than the receiver. made no difference to mine. i live in a a single floor flat and reception is not a problem. just no difference to speed. but my router is only a 802.11g.

if u have a wireless n router and your built in one is g only then it will speed it up. If you have a g router it would make no difference

It wont make a difference to internet speed as even 2 year old laptops wifi will outperform most broadband connections.

Not true. It will make no difference to his *internet* speed. It *may* make a noticeable difference to his internal network speed if he has a wireless N router already and copies loads of files around the network.

This is definitely a good deal. It is the N series which means it's the latest receiver up to date. Previous versions are G, which is what my Sky router is, wish i can upgrade to a N so that i can play my 360 slim... but not sure if Sky allows me to use a different router than the one they supplied me with...

Are you serious??? Of course you need an 'N' router and 'N' dongle to experience faster data transfer.
