Woot just had something similar a few days ago for 7 dollars + 5 for shipping. But this one is sleek and black and a couple dollars more.

Perfect if you missed out on this a couple days ago on woot

I believe the one on Woot was only 2.4ghz though, this is dual band. I've been keeping an eye out for an adapter that can operate on 5ghz because I have a 5ghzN AP, but my new HP from Woot only sees 2.4ghz.

imo these are the best adapters. I built a PC for my parents and they have it in their bedroom. Their router is in their living room which and has to go through several walls to get a signal in the bedroom. I tried a 300mbps usb dongle, and internal with 2 external antennas and then one of these. The first two could barely get a signal, but the adapter like this with the usb extension works flawlessly. The one I got them was the white on that was featured on Woot the other day, so I would imagine that this one works even better. Well worth the price if you ask me.

Will this work with a non Cisco Linksys wireless router?

Mine arrived today. Avoid the CD, go straight to Cisco and download the driver ZIP from them. I'm on W764HP so I pulled that specific folder out to my desktop. Plugin the adapter. It will complain about no driver, but use the option to pick you own. Navigate to that folder, choose it, and in a minute or so you're all installed. I'm cooking along again with my 5gHz Netgear router again. Woo hoo!
