    hope I can get this clear before buying a new MBair 1.86 SSD .
    Can I connect to the MB air the ethernet / USB adapter via a USB hub ? via the USB hub of the extrenal keyboard ? via the USB hub of the new 24" led display ?

    I have the USB Network adapter working on an old windows machine with a USB 1 port so i think it will work via a hub as long as its a powered hub, so yes to the Apple monitor but i doubt it would work from a USB keyboard

    yeah, I've bought it allready and its everytime in use with my mba. it's great because its all-in-one and because its tiny and because there is no nead for external power (but there is an option for external power-in).
    In the end I recommend it. :cool:

    Ok many thanks. It is really a great addition, although not very known that such an adapter can work with a Macbook air.
    keyboard / modem and Ethernet at the same time seems therefore not only possible but part of an easy and light solution, in tune with MBair philisophy.
    That thing should be marketed by Apple.

    Very nice product.

    Are there any sites that sell this too for non-european countries?
