The 3com office connect is fantastic, my laptop wouldn't connect to the internet no matter what i did till one day i stuck the 3com in my laptop and straight away i way connected. The adapter is very durable i have dropped it many times an it still works, it automaticlly works the minute you plug it in no annoying popups that slow down your machine, its very reliable and doesn't stop working for a strange reson all the time i have owned it nothing has gone wrong and meant that i canot connect to the internet wirelessly. its very simple to use just stick it in and surf the internet no complicated searches for wlans or 20 high security checks. If you just want to check your ebay or facebook for 5 minutes this product is perfect but it is also great if you need the internet for a long time because it doesnt overheat. its very small and fits snuggly in the side of your laptop/computer and doesn't make your laptop look bad. It has helpfull lights on it to show you if it is on, one says link to show you if the adapter is connected to the wlan and one says act to tell you that packets of data are both being sent and recieved, for those who arent It technions or science geniuses this is a simple and easy way to use the internet and surf for from 5 minutes to 5 hours. The price is £19.99 at amazon and it is long lasting and cheaper then other produts such as netgear, it is worth every pound and penny.
