I don’t profess to be a networking expert but I am quite impressed by the specs of this little usb wifi adapter. It has all the normal security features you could want with the WEP/WPA/WPA2 encryption and a couple that are new to me (though I don’t normally use wifi) with the Cisco CCX support, the 150mbp/s connection speed is nothing short of great for wifi and it doesn’t get much faster than that without using multiple channels. It also supports right down to 1Mb/s should you need it to. Asit is also USB1.1 and USB2 there won’t be many systems out there it wont work on though I suspect it wont be able to achieve 150Mb/s on USB1.1. The antenna is adjustable, as expected, so you should be able to rotate it to the necessary direction to achieve optimum signal strength to get the highest transfer speed possible.
Also it is multi platform compatible so will work on PC’s and Mac’s alike.
