"We first reviewed the Wi-Fire over a year ago, but there's now
a new iteration (the third generation, model HFWFG200)--a more
refined version of the previous design, which it replaces.
Considerably more compact than its slab-sided predecessor--hField
says the new model is 40% smaller and 30% lighter--at $59, the new
Wi-Fire also rings up $20 less expensive.
"The Wi-Fire is a USB-based 802.11b/g adapter (alas, the
Wi-Fire's Atheros AR5007UG chipset doesn't do 802.11n) paired with
a high-gain directional antenna and compatible with Windows, Mac,
or Linux systems. (Windows and Mac OS X drivers are included in the
box, while Linux software can be downloaded)."
