  • Summary: I've always been wary of USB wireless dongles. Tiny, low-gain PCB antennas, crappy drivers. However they do come in handy so I got one for playing around with a Raspberry Pi and backup computers. This one is a bit unusual. It's an oddball 1x2 device which transmits over one antenna but receives 2 streams over 2 antennas. This means it's rated 150 Mbps/300 Mbps - but only with 40 MHz wide channels which you are unlikely to be able to use.
  • Pros: Excellent speed, 150 Mbps transmit but 300 Mbps receive, i.e. 1x2 antennas, Tiny, Excellent range, Low price, Activity LED, Runs in Linux
  • Cons: Utility interferes with other wireless utilities, Gets very hot in Linux

TRENDnet TEW-649UB Mini Wireless N Speed USB Adapter

  • Summary: This thing works great! In a new stucco home still gets 95 and higher connection on a split floor plan and the router is on the other end of the house. I bought this for a customer and he loves it. The size is amazingly small about 3/4 of an inch long- so its not very easy to break it from it sitting in the usb port. the price and range is excellent. Plus the software is way user friendly and has alot of detail about your connection!

  • Summary: I was using an Asus 802.11B/G USB Adaptor on my HTPC and was experiencing dropped signals all the time. This Trendnet seems to have cured the problem. I watched hours of programming across the network last night and never experienced a single hiccup. My router is only a "G" so I don't know how good the "N" speed is on this unit. I do know it operates at the full 54Mbps speed consistently within my network.
  • Pros: Small size, Great performance
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: I bought this for significantly less on the boxing day week blowout. Was placed on backorder, but received it quickly after. As you can see in the picture with the quarter, or plugged into the laptop this unit is tiny! However size doesn't affect the speed of it, especially if you have a N Router to partner up with it. Has everything you would want in a USB Wireless Adapter. I would highly recommend this item, especially if it is on sale.
  • Pros: Size, N capability, Speed
  • Cons: None that I can think of.
