      Wireless USB Adaptor

      How does one go about obtaining a Sky Wireless USB Adaptor (Sometimes know as a Dongle). How much does it cost and how does it compare with the Belkin version.
      I find the Belking version hardly works, I am now returning my third one, possibly cheap and cheerful and not reliable? So is it worth trying Sky’s version?

      I purchased 2 direct from Sky. They cost £20.00 each and I've seen them on the net between £35.00 and £50.00 so Sky works out rather cheap

      I'm not sure if they are giving me 108Mb but windows reports that as the connection speed. I've not have any problem connecting even when the modem was on the ground floor and the notebook in my loft room 2 floors up
