      Answer

      This is a WLAN device, not a WWAN device. It cannot connect to any cellular networks, only Wi-Fi networks.

      Answer

      No, your Asus is your wireless connection.... it is what looks for router signal and then hooks (taps) you into it. You just need to know your SSID (your ID number) and WPA KEY number (numbers used like a pad lock so no one else can use your connection). All these items are what your internet company has and should give to you upon hooking you into there system. If you don't know them, you will have to call them and request them. The Asus will ask you for this information.

      I want my laptop to be bluetooth for printing capabilities.   (2 Answers)

      Does this item do all that you need for a laptop to send documents to your printer?

        Answer

        Mike, This is an network Ethernet adapter, not a Bluetooth adapter. So it won't add bluetooth to your laptop. All newer laptops (and most older laptops) have WiFi built into them, so this would be redundant (other than it would upgrade you to wireless-N if you don't already have it. But it won't add bluetooth. Does your printer have WiFi (wireless) built into it? If so, then you'll be able to connect to your printer with either this wireless adapter (or the built-in adapter that most like is already installed on your laptop). If your printer is a "bluetooth" printer, then you'd need to purchase a USB Bluetooth adapter (such as this Rocketfish Micro USB adapter http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfish%26%23153%3B+-+Micro+Bluetooth+USB+Adapter/8820886.p?id=1207351932175&skuId=8820886) With bluetooth, you will most likely need to be in the same room as the printer for reliable printing. Hope this helps, TechRealm

        Panasonic viera Plasma Internet-Ready TV   (2 Answers)

        Will this work as well as an alternative to the much pricier Panasonic USB Network adapter to connect my TV to my wireless network?

          Answer

          This may or may not work depending on the chipset of the Panasonic wireless dongle. Some people with this TV are using Apple's Airport Express to convert the LAN port on your TV to wireless as an alternative to buying the proprietary Panasonic wireless dongle.
