Its not worth the headache of getting it to work when you can get a router for $15-$20. If you are worried about space they have travel routers that are tiny and cheap. Also it is far more secure to have a router between you and your internet modem.

Herc08 is telling you that a "like a usb wifi thing" might be made to work. And suggesting that you should consider another, easier way to solve what appears to be your problem.

I'm saying that probably getting a USB dongle may be harder considering that most of the cheap ones are in China, and will cost more to ship them. A cheap router, even a 802.11g should do you justice. But your computer has to be on the WHOLE time for internet to be stabled. Again, I strong suggest a router, a very cheap router.
