Closing thoughts

I was generally impressed with the H-WU36D. It's not as cute as the latest mini-USB adapters, nor as inexpensive as older models. But, the combination of current-generation 11b chipset, decent gain antenna, and easy USB connection might be just what you need to extend your wireless LAN to that tough-to-reach location.
