Most new laptops have built-in wireless, but if you still have an old laptop or desktop that you want to connect wirelessly, Hawking Tech has something for you.

On Thursday, the company introduced its first Hi-Gain compact Wireless-N USB adapter, the HWUN3. This little device comes with a removable antenna that can be replaced with one of Hawking's Hi-Gain Wi-Fi Range Extending antenna.

The HWUN3 supports 802.11n and connects to a computer via a USB 2.0 connection. According to Hawking Tech, when coupled with one of its Hi-Gain antenna, the HWUN3 can boost the range of a wireless connection to up to six times.

The new adapter's features include:

  • Support both Windows or Mac computers
  • Upgradable Hi-Gain antenna to potentially offer longer range and better wireless performance
  • Easy installation with step-by-step setup wizard
  • Supports WEP, WPA, WPA2 wireless security

Personally, I think the adapter is more suitable for desktops as it seems too bulky for laptops, especially when used with an external antenna.

The HWUN3 Hi-Gain Compact USB Wireless-N Adapter is available now and has the street price of about $60.
