Default D-Link Ships Super Small Wireless-N Adapters

Quote:


Every tech should have a wireless dongle in his/her emergency kit, and if you don't have one already, D-Link hopes you'll consider one of its new fun-sized models. D-Link's Wireless N 150 Pico Adapter (DWA-121) and Wireless N USB Adapter (DWA-131) both sport a compact design that makes for easy storage and can be plugged into a laptop or desktop without sticking out like a, well, typical dongle.

"With extremely compact designs the Pico is about the size of a dime these new adapters are ideal for setting up a high-performance wireless connection while on the road or in a packed conference room," said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of consumer marketing, D-Link North America. "They enable consumers to quickly and easily connect a desktop computer or laptop to a Wi-Fi network in order to securely browse the Internet, transfer and download files, music, videos, and more at their convenience."

The DWA-121 supports speeds of up to 150Mbps and the DWA-131 up to 300Mbps. The latter model additionally supports Wi-Fi protected setup (WPS) push button.

Both the 121 and 131 are available now, and both are priced at $50.

Nice.
The receiver for my Logitech mouse is that small too. This is excellent for laptops and the like.
