Want to buy supported usb networking with firmware rev. Tired of looking and having to return

Hello, I am trying to buy a supported device of the list here.  http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3805

However everytime I buy from new egg or amazon I get the wrong firmware or hardware revision and have problems or have to send back.

Can anyone tell me of a usb nic from that list that I can easily obtain without playing the guessing game of what hardware version is on the usb nic.

For example any of the above are g/n and only have 1 hardware version?


I am using the Cisco/Linksys WUSB600 v2 and it has been working very well for me. I bought it from Newegg several months ago. I don’t think that there has been a V3 yet, so hopefully they will still be selling V2s. This is a dual band adapter (2.4 and 5 GHz), so this may not be what you are looking for. However, if you have a simultaneous dual band wireless router, you can dedicate the 5 GHz channel to video streaming, which works very well.
