and if you are in a secured office, chances are you wont be able to get onto the network anyways using the RJ45

the only way this will work is in an unsecured network, for you to sign on, and not get access denied to the router/switch

and probably too cheap to not want to use the 3G / Edge to go online.

i wouldn't want to carry so much extra stuff with me to be able to go online using a RJ45 when i go out with my phone

When you go outside your home,office, or go abroad, the place where you are only exist rj-45 with no 3g,wifi, you will feel happy if you have this adapter to connect to the net.

For example, when I went to Hong Kong a few months ago for 4 days vacation, there was only RJ45 line to use, there was no wifi in the Hotel, and I couldn't buy any 3G sim card there. Anyway, when you own a huge phone like athena, you will not annoy to take one more usb-rj45 with you.

hmmm..... that sure is odd, almost every hotel i've been to in the USA, Canada, UK, and Israel, they all had Wi Fi in the hotel areas.

that's why i can hardly think of any reason why a RJ45 connection would be required, but you do have a point.

can't imagine some parts of the world are still so out dated.

With me the reason i am getting one is that at uni the wifi's don't like windows mobile devices and so you can't connect to it (it requires this small java installation thingo and entering your password, and ive tried both opera and IE and ill just sit there loading for ages..)

Hopefully i can just straight away connect it to the Ethernet ports ...hmm.... $30+ US for it...hope its worth it

I was at Disney in Florida a month ago. I was outside of my phone's cell range (I have an older regional and not nationwide plan), and most of Disney's resorts only offer in-room Ethernet. They told me only 1 or 2 of the resorts have Wifi. So I could have used this, at a very modern and up-to-date resort...

exactly... and if there is no wifi... just carry a travel wireless router (i got one from ebay) and it turns any ethernet connection into a wifi spot !!! brilliant !

It's a good solution,too.
The wireless router needs extra power. As I know, the voltage, plug or socket may not be the same in every country, when you go abroad, the wireless router may be useless. For example, the socket and plug in Hong Kong is not the same as they in Taiwan.
