What is this thing for the dummys here like me?
Will this work with either the Tivo Series 3 HD and/or the Western Digital HD Live?
I hope these are better than the linksys ones woot had before. They said Windows 7 compatible but didn't work at all...
Can this be used as a wireless network adapter for a series 3 TiVo?
300Mbps, that's really fast right?
These come in handy in some situations but are not a great idea for constant use.
Worth picking up at this price though!
Only on review to be found on Buzzillions.
Anyone have any info on Linux support?
For this price, it's worth a gamble.
Oh man this would have been perfect for a buddy of mine with an old Titanium PowerBook G4 looking to connect to his family's 802.11g network. Alas, no Mac support at all, to say nothing about the old Tiger-based G4. :-(
I have zero use for this, but at 7 bucks who gives a warp. Buy the motherwarper and throw it in the warping trash if it doesn't work. Also handy for a warping backup.
Someone please explain to this old lady what this is used for. I love technology but some things just go right over my head.
It's too bad these are 2.4GHz only. Less interference in the 5GHz band usually on these N adapters. You probably wouldn't get any range at 5GHz with something that has such a tiny antenna though.
Quite tempting at this price though still.

Looks like it's confirmed working for Ubuntu
My question is, does anyone know if this can be modded/hacked for an external antenna?

It will NOT work with the TivoHD. The ONLY ones that will work in those are the Tivo branded units.
two reviews, both 5 stars, both using Ubuntu
According to this PDF, the adapter does support Linux, but I couldn't find any Linux drivers on their website. Although, I did find a couple of forum postings from people who have managed to get this adapter to work under Ubuntu.

If you have a desk top or a laptop that does not have a wireless card then you plug this in your USB port and you have wireless internet on that computer.
Vista? What about the new version of windows that isn't MEII?? (ME 2) Windows 7?
I'll try 3, just because they'll work on XP and 2K.
If you have a wireless router (b/g/n), then this will allow you to connect a computer to it wirelessly.
I see in the specs where it lists the supported operating systems, and I see that Windows Server 2003 and 2008 are NOT listed. My question is, does anybody know if this will work on either of those server operating systems?
Can this be used as a wireless repeater to extend the coverage to where it does not reach currently?
Any chance Windows will automatically finds drivers for this thing?
It lets you use the Internet without being plugged into the box from your cable/phone company. As my girlfriend would say, "it grabs the Internet from the air". If you already have wireless (say on your laptop), then this adapter might make your connection faster or the range (how far from the cable/phone company box you can go) longer.

Hmm, so I'm guessing that TiVo Premier won't work with this wireless adapter, either?
This should work with WDTV Live:
That's why I'm getting one.
Will this work with my xbox 360?
I had asked the same question. However, there ARE other ones (besides TiVo branded ones). You can get a list on the TiVo website of other brands/models that work.
Anyone see any issues using this as the adapter for my samsung?
I love my Airlink101 N-300mhz adapter. Smaller and only $16.75 shipped tax-free. Works great in my popcornhour or netbook.
hmmm.... these can be good to have in some cases... make sure you check compatibility with your device before purchasing.
Is it mac compatible?
Surprised I'm the first smartass to ask.
I am wondering the exact same thing and I am a young, generally tech-savvy lady. Why would I need this if I have a working wireless card in my computer?
Will this work with an Xbox 360? I'm currently using a Linksys b music bridge, and looking to get a faster connection to my router.

FYI, that's the G version, not the N one for sale here.
the two reviews on the amazon page i linked above say it works with Ubuntu 10.4

It supposedly uses the Atheros chipset so it should work with the AR9170 driver in the kernel. See driver notes at kernel.org.
