Connect your USB-equipped desktop or notebook computer to a wireless network at incredible speeds with the Linksys Wireless-G USB Network Adapter. By incorporating two new, blazing fast technologies -- USB 2.0 and Wireless-G (802.11g) -- the Adapter delivers data rates up to 54Mbps (5 times as fast as 802.11b), without the trouble of opening up the case of your desktop computer.
To install, simply plug the Adapter into any available USB port. (It's compatible with both USB 1.1 and 2.0 ports, but 2.0 will yield the fastest speeds.) It gets its power through the USB connection, so no power cord is necessary. The included Setup Wizard walks you through configuring the Adapter to your wireless network settings, step by step. The Wireless-G USB Network Adapter is also compatible with the Wireless-B (802.11b) network standard, with data rates up to 11Mbps. And your wireless communications can be protected by industrial-strength Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption, so your data stays safe.
The Wireless-G USB Network Adapter's high-gain antenna lets you put your computer almost anywhere in the building, without the cost and hassle of running cables. Now you don't have to drill holes in your walls and climb through the attic or cellar to get connected to the network. Once you're connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet, use instant messaging to chat with friends, and share files and other resources such as printers and hard disk storage space with other computers on the network.
So don't hassle with running cables through your house -- get connected the easy way with the Wireless-G USB Network Adapter.

A Note on Windows Vista and 7:
Though the retail box version of this item never made any mention of support for this device under Windows Vista (32-bit only) or Windows 7 (32-bit) we've tested the device under both operating systems and it works great.
Note that this is specific to the 32-bit versions of Vista and 7. Thus far, no drivers exist for the 64-bit version of XP, Vista, or 7 for this device.
For Windows Vista 32-bit you can either use the driver package we provide on the accompanying CD or if you have another network connection available at the time of installation (CAT5 cable for example), you can allow Windows to install the driver for you from the Microsoft driver database.
For Windows 7 32-bit you'll need another network connection available at the time of installation (CAT5 cable for example). Windows will install the driver for you from the Microsoft driver database.
