I can't confirm that I can connect through it, because I don't have a wireless 
router here, but this is looking rather good.

What I've got at home is a PC that belongs to a friend, which has Hardy 
installed on it. The WiFi dongle is a BlueNext model BN-WD54G. When I powered 
up this PC just now, with the Ethernet  unplugged and the dongle in a USB 
port, it detects two BT Home Hub devices in the locality, but they're 
encrypted and I've got no idea who they belong to, so I can't do anything 
more. But it detected the WiFi without doing anything other than plugging in 
the dongle.
