Buffalo WiFi LAN adapter
Japanese manufacturers Buffalo have announced the AirStation NFINITI, a WiFi adapter based on the draft 802.11n standard. The adapter connects to a computer through a 6.5-foot USB 1.1/2.0 cable and has an extremely compact form factor, allowing the antennas to be turned in many different directions. The transmitter can reach speeds of up to 70Mbps with an 11n connection, but also supports lesser speeds with 802.11b/g. Configuration can be managed with a single button press. The product goes on sale in Japan in late December for the price of 11,500 yen ($97).
