    Hi I'm looking for a good USB wireless network adapter for a computer running Windows Vista. I've got a Time Capsule which is hooked up to my Mac Pro. Anyone have the Linksys wireless N USB Network adapter (WUSB300N). Is it any good? Linksys has it listed on there site as being refurbished, Should I purchase it? Any other USB Wireless N Adapter's that I should consider? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    It doesn't say on the Linksys page that the adapter is compatible with Mac, it says its Windows only, which means it wont work with your Mac Pro. In the past i've had issues getting any Linksys adaptors to work with Mac's due to the lack of drivers.

    I do know however that this Linksys adapter will work: Linksys WUSB600N
    as i use it myself, and it only works because it uses the ralink chipset, but its not an easy task installing the drivers.

    Thanks for the comments. The USB adapter will be used on a Windows Vista computer. Is the Linksys WUSB600N just as good as the WUSB300N? the antennas seem a bit shorter. My wireless computer running Windows Vista is upstairs and my Mac Pro is downstairs which is hooked directly up to my Time Capsule. Would the connection be ok? Thanks.
