D-link DWL-122

By

Tiny, lightweight and rugged, this USB thumb drive 802.11b adaptor features 64- and 128-bit WEP security making it ideal for frequent travellers and notebook users without a free PCMCIA slot. Included in the package is a one metre USB extension cable -- handy for extending the placement of this product, and for other frequently plugged and unplugged devices using rear USB ports.

Mac compatible for OS X and above, this will allow users to share a wireless connection across two platforms without hassle. Unfortunately the lack of any stand makes it hard to place for optimum performance. We also noticed that the unit displays weaker signal than its brother, the AG250 PCI, over the same testing distance.
