I just reviewed the Kinivo ZX120 speaker a little bit ago, about a week actually, and I didn’t know they made things like the WID380 wi-fi adapter that they just announced. The WID380 is USB obviously but it has dual folding antennas for excellent signal strength and is compatible with 802.11n and below. Price is only $19.99 which is pretty good I think.
Kinivo, producer of quality mobile accessories, today announces their WID380 Wireless Enhanced USB Adapter, an all-in-one solution for enhancing existing Wi-Fi capabilities or adding the freedom of wireless Internet to your desktop or later laptop models. Kinivo’s WID380 Wireless Enhanced USB Adapter adds dimension, increases speed, improves signal strength and heightens overall wireless Internet performance, establishing a more reliable network between your Internet router and laptop or desktop. The new WID380 delivers your device’s best wireless connection, maximizing performance and providing your signal a boost with speeds up to 300 Mbps for immediate high-speed wireless connectivity at home, work or hotspot locations.
The WID380 is the ultimate Wi-Fi solution for difficult-to-wire environments, including buildings with solid or finished walls, bringing the freedom of wireless Internet wherever you need. Mobile professionals and students will also benefit from Kinivo’s new WID380 given their frequently changing environments, requiring a reliable Internet connection between meetings, classes and more.
Kinivo’s user friendly WID380 connects by plugging directly into your laptop or desktop’s USB port, or, can be placed up to three feet away with the included extension cable. This optimal position allows the wireless dual antennas improve speed, range and signal strength. Helpful for mobile professionals, online gaming, digital media streaming and file transfer, Kinivo’s WID380 increases your Internet connection’s wireless capabilities to ensure they’re operating as efficiently and securely as possible.
