Hello, Geeks

I have found two useless USB WIFI adapters and was wanting to know if I could use them as a flash drive or something else. There old 802.11 G adapters one from netopia and netgear. Any answers will be taken.

Thanks, Brandon

Well they would only have 5-7megs of data writeable on them so no point TBH.

Nope, not possible, has to be a WI-FI Dongle.

Sorry, I miss red the question. No you cannot, WI-FI Dongle's are programmed with an interface not a storage chip. My bad sorry.

You can, It is called hacking a device. Rewrite the code on the device and use the internal memory to act as a storage device.

We don't talk about hacking.

I do. You might not.

@Callum. There is a difference between 'hacking' and 'cracking'.
