I know the mini only supports "G" wifi speeds, so if I have an "N" router and other "N" clients, the mini forces the whole network to work at "G" speeds.

Obviously, I'd like to get everything on the "N" train.

Can you do that with something like this:

Just pop it into a mini USB port, change airport settings (assuming that's required), and I'm all set?

Or is the lack of support for "N" a fundamental issue that can't be worked around (other than by some soldering and special hardware)?

According to the specs, it works with any Mac with a usb port, so a mini is clearly included. I don't think there's anything inherent in the mini to prevent 802.11n networking. In fact, there is at least one recent thread about a mini owner who installed an AirPort n internally.

I would rather use an 802.11n adapter since you can make the simple "strainer" dish to increase signal strength, also you can use a longer USB extension cable to get a little bit better reception.
