    My wireless adapter keeps losing connection, so I am in need of a new one. I do not want to spend too much, so it looks this could be the one I should buy. Should I?

    They say it works from a quick Google search. If it doesn't, I wont care, it's so cheap [​IMG]. Hope it works out for you as well, Lee79.

    why dont you just get a wireless modem?
    lits of companies give them free on special offers or even let you rent it for cheap.

    I have a wireless modem/router. This is a wi-fi receiver so you can connect to the router it is for my laptop so i can connect. I need a usb one as the internal wi-fi on it is rubbish.

    Im loving the pound doller rate. Amazon uk have down as 16.99 GBP + postage.
    15.90 USD = 8.00 GBP = 18.1900 AUD.

    Just curios: How does the connection rate of those things compare to an average usb dongle? As small as it might be, it looks like it would still be in the way, at least on my desk [​IMG]
