If your PC or laptop does not have Wi-Fi, then the EDIMAX wireless 802.11b/g/n nano USB adaptor is just dongle you need.  Just plug this little bugger in your laptop or PC and you have instant Wi-Fi. 
 
It’s the world''s smallest 802.11n USB adapter, which is not hard to believe considering its miniscule 7.1 x 14.9 x 18.5 mm size. It is small enough to “plug and forget” since it does not stick out like bigger dongles. The EDIMAX also supports higher data rates of up to 150 Mbps when connecting with wireless 802.11n device, three times faster than your normally 11g connection.
 
With support for green WLAN technology the EW-7811Un will assist you in reducing your systems power consumption by up to 20-50%, as it can adjust transmission output by distance as well as CPU offload to help reduce power consumption when the wireless is idle. It also supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to assist users in securing their wireless network.
 
It comes with a RRP of R153 (excl VAT). Call Miro distribution (www.miro.co.za) on 086-123-6476 for more details.

CONS
Prone to get lost as it is so tiny.
