    I wouldn't recommend USB Wifi. They're sketchy at best. USB really isn't stable enough for something like Wifi. When they work, it's slow. If you do want to try this route, however, I'd find a cheap one on eBay, as we had 2 expensive ones for our tower and I would have gladly chosen dial-up instead. Atleast with dial-up you know that it's there if you need it.

    Bottom line, you can't depend on a USB dongle... But if the price is right, by all means try it.
