My old Hawking Technology's Hi-Gain USB Wireless-G Adapter (Model: HWU54D; original version) broke and I need to get a new wireless USB adapter. I liked its small dish thing (not a handy man to make my own due to my disabilities) to aim directional if needed. However, I was unhappy that it got hot, Envara got bought out by Intel, no more support by the companies, no recent driver updates, can't use it in Linux and Mac OS X, etc.
I looked atand some sales. Which one is the best one in terms of connecting, stability, reaching far away APs, good support, can do more than Windows (Linux and Mac OS X if possible)? Here's the list I narrowed down:
AirLink WL G 54 USB USB Adapter = $7.99 at Fry's.
Netgear WG111US Wireless G 802.11g USB 2.0 Adapter (54 Mbps speed) = $39.99 at Circuit City
Linksys WUSB54GC Wireless G 802.11g USB 2.0 adapter = $39.99 at Circuit City
Netgear WL 54G USB 802.11g 54Mbps Wireless USB Adapter = $39.99 at Staples
D Link DWA130 Wireless N USB Adapter = $49.99 at Circuit City
Belkin F5D8053 Wireless N USB Adapter = $59.99 at Circuit City
Netgear WL N USB = $69.98 at Staples
Linksys WUSB600N Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter = $69.99 at Circuit City
Netgear WN111100 NAS RangeMax NEXT Wireles N 802.11n USB Adapter = $69.99 at Circuit City
I have Circuit City, Fry's Electronics, Staples, and Office Depot near by. If I have to pay more for a better quality wireless USB adapter to meet my requirements, then I am OK as long as the price is reasonable.
Thank you in advance. :)
