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 fuck. Buy the motherfucker and throw it in the fucking trash if it doesn’t work. Also handy for a fucking 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.
