I tried this one once, it worked fine.

Rosewill RNX-N180UBE Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 1T2R / 5 dBi External Antenna / Up to 300Mbps Wireless Download Data Rates 64/128-bit WEP (Hex & ASCII), WPA/WPA2, WPA(TKIP with IEEE 802.1x)/WPA2(AES with IEEE 802.1x)

Works on linux as well, if needed. All for less than $20 : )

Thats OK, but it is much weaker in getting the signal.

It cannot get the strong connection that USB version will.

If u would have both, than u would see how much different it would be in available networks around you.

That tells u, it doesn't have the strength of the USB antenna, which u can direct anywhere to improve the connections.

Oh, and one more thing. Major issue.

It has no N standard, it will be slow as u don't even imagine.

Its an olllllld standard. The N is a must, if reliable connection is needed,

without disconnecting!

What is the Difference Between 802.11B, G and 802.11N?


Among its key innovations, 802.11n adds technology called multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), a signal processing and smart antenna technique for transmitting multiple data streams through multiple antennas.

This results in up to five times the performance and up to twice the range compared to the earlier 802.11g standard.
