TRENDnet outs tiny USB draft N adapter

TRENDnet has unveiled the 150Mbps Mini Wireless N USB Adapter, a network link it claims is the smallest 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter ever. The device is only slightly longer than its USB connector and is built for netbooks and other PCs where it's preferable to leave the adapter attached even when the system is in a bag. It still supports full-size features like Wi-Fi Protected Setup.

The peripheral is officially compatible with Windows 2000, XP and Vista and can get a signal as far as 160 feet indoors and 320 feet when outside, or about three times farther than 802.11g. Prices at various retailers range from $28 to $32.

    awesome find!

    These are really great tools you can use to extend the WiFi network you have in your house, specially to those devices which really don't have WiFi capabilities. If you're looking for an alternative though, I recommend the Netgear Universal WiFi Internet Adapter. This WiFi adapter is compatible with most internet-ready devices such as TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, and more. You can also use it to connect notebooks, wireless printers, and other networked home theater devices. For more information about the Netgear Universal WiFi Internet Adapter, visit and discover this wonderful device from Netgear. Enjoy!
