Asus unveiled a new WiFi USB stick, the WL-160N. This stick supports WiFi 802.11b/g and the new n draft standard. The stick measures only 9 x 2.7 x 0.9cm and features an external cradle for better location and sensitivy.
Recognizing the value of the new WiFi standard, ASUS’ WL-160N has been honored with the accolade of being a WI-FI CERTIFIED 802.11n Draft 2.0 product. This wireless card is also backward compatible with previous 802.11 b/g standards – making it recognized for industry-wide interoperability and adherence to security protocols. Utilizing MIMO technology, the WL-160N will have a throughput of over 100Mbps – faster than most normal wired solutions. It will also reduce deadspots and provide improved coverage distances in comparison to previous G standards. Truly, with breakthrough technology that produces the fastest and smallest wireless cards, you’d be hard pressed not to choose the ASUS WL-160N.

Ah none of the details an informed buyer needs
how many transmit, how many receive antennas?
how many power transmitters?
