Cords and cables are indeed becoming the thing of the past as we all try to move into a less cluttered environment. However, it’s never as easy as it seems is it? For instance, setting up a wireless home hub can prove to be a really daunting task for some people. PRISMIQ thought so too and has brought to market a WiFi-compliant adapter that can connect your laptops and desktops to a home network automatically, the Mini-Fi.
The Mini-Fi, which sells for $39.95, is a wireless adapter that plugs into any USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 jack to give your laptop instant access to any 802.11b or 802.11g WiFi network. It also works with your desktop without having to install a PCI card. It’s even backwards-compatible with all 802.11b and 802.11b+ wireless equipment. As such, this little gizmo enables interoperability with the most popular wireless networks used in offices and WiFi hotspots.
