    Since Mountain Lion is so new, you may have to wait a while before USB WiFi adapters will have drivers for Lion. You should always check to see if your hardware and software is compatible before upgrading.

    OK, so I have to ask... why wouldn't you just use the built in AirPort (WiFi) adapter? All MacBook models are equipped with one.

    These little USB adapters have very limited antennas. Not sure why you'd bother with them since all MacBooks come equipped with built-in Wifi (that has a real antenna).
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I'm researching the same thing as the OP, and hoping now that time has passed that there are more options. The internal wifi of my MPB works fine when I'm near an access point, but I have a large directional wifi antenna that I'd like to connect. I used to make solid connections over a mile away with this antenna. 17 miles was my record for a connection with this type of antenna and some pro gear.
