Looking for USB 2.0 802.11b dongle

Hi everyone,

Does such a thing exist? I've only managed to find USB 1.1 wi-fi blobs thus far, which isn't much use for file-sharing.

I don't think that you would gain any advantage using a USB 2.0 dongle as opposed to a USB 1.1.

The 802.11b standard of Wi-Fi only runs at a maximum of 11Mbps and the USB 1.1 runs at a maximum of 12Mbps.

Hope this helps

Ahh right. Sorry, I thought USB 1.1 was 4mbps.

Thanks Fitshase,
