The extent of my knowledge about this product is that it ran me about 
$12 last week from TigerDirect :-).

It claims to have three antennas inside its little box - pointing up, 
left, and right - with LEDs indicating which one is in use. Oddly 
enough, the same LED lights up regardless of how I orient it w.r.t. the 
AP. I also notice that all the literature calls it 802.11g - not 
802.11n. My guess is that it's a garden variety, gimmicked-up 802.11g 
desktop dongle.
