I just bought and installed the Mini Wireless N usb adapter to my Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop. I run various versions of Linux. The installation was painless and the little thing is running at it's highest speed. The signal level is at 0db compared to -70db for other adapters. On openSuse 11.4 setting up any NIC has been a real PITA. Thanks Patriot for making my day end nicely!
