This little USB stick is a prime example of technology becoming more compact while steadily improving. A WiFi adapter would have been the size of a large computer motherboard card just a few years ago, and would have cost you three to four times as much as this device while delivering speeds that are an order of magnitude lower.

I was really happy to get this micro WiFi USB stick because I have a couple of older or low-power computers that did not come with native WiFi connectivity. The WiFi stick comes with a small CD which contains all the necessary drives for my computer. I installed the drivers on my old Windows 7 machine and with that the USB stick was recognized… Read more
