ELSA have launched their new "USB2Ethernet Adapter", which does exactly what it says on the tin, plugging into your USB socket and giving you an instant ethernet connection to hook your computer up to a LAN with. Designed primarily for laptop owners, it saves you a PCMCIA slot, and at just £39.99 it's a fairly cheap alternative to buying a network card. With plug and play installation it should be a doddle to get working as well, and for those of you with a way of destroying your hardware it comes with a two year warranty. The adapater was designed for "organisations where one or more notebook user needs fast and simple access to the office network", but it could come in handy for LAN gamers as well.
