Anyone used the MacWireless 11b USB Adapter ? Does it work well? Pros/Cons anyone?

Specifically how does it work with Panther 10.3.2?

The D-Link DWL-122 has poor performance under OS X in my experience.

I'm hesistant to run out and purchase the MacWireless USB unit because of the $80 price tag. I got the D-Link for $29 on sale ($10 rebate through CompUSA).

Thanks!

doesnt a airport extreme (or not) card cost... less?

That price tag makes no sense unless the comp you own isnt capable of carrying a airport card or somekind.

With a student discount an AirPort Extreme card cost me $88 as part of a new iBook. Without discounts it costs $99. The cost difference isn't that much, and you get guaranteed operation. I'd get an AirPort card, myself.
