Yes sir, the smallest USB adapters that we have seen thus far tend to belong to wireless mice, but here we are with something that works best on legacy notebooks – that is, notebooks without Wi-Fi connectivity, which is a rarity these days. Of course, if your current notebook runs on 802.11b/g, then you can also look into the TP-Link Wireless N Nano USB adapter as it offers 802.11n capability, delivering up to 150Mbps speeds in theory.

Extremely small, the TP-Link Wireless N Nano USB adapter measures a mere 0.73” x 0.59” x 0.28” which allows it to remain plugged in to your notebook without worrying about it breaking off when you travel around or pack your notebook. Other features include software-based WPS support, soft AP function for wireless Internet sharing support, advanced security such as 64/128 WEP, WPA/WPA2, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES), while playing nice with Windows XP 32/64 bit, Vista 32/64 bit, and Windows 7 32/64 bit operating systems. The asking price of $12.99 makes it worth checking out even if you don’t need it.
