:: points to the tags:: That's what it is.. a usb 2.0 dongle with a small flip-up-able antenna that adds bluetooth, 802.11b/g support in one dongle. Alas,

Current price looks like: 47.19 Euro = 58.32684 U.S. dollars, and only available from weird places: http://www.bettercomponents.be/index.php?manufacturers_id=16&sort=2a&page=4

Why am I looking for? I want a usb dongle that'll let me hack into wireless networks I don't have access to yet, with KisMac. Unfortunately, the above longshine thingie uses the Zydas chipset that's not supported yet. At least, not by MacOS X/BSD. Linux, yes... but... Marf. It also means I won't be able to use Hawking's Mini 802.11g USB 2.0 adapter ($4.99 + $5.99 s/h) [ link | http://dealnews.com/deals/Hawking-Mini-802-11-g-USB-2-0-Adapter-for-4-99-after-rebate/91428.html ] XP
