Default Best portable USB wifi hotspot?

As someone who will undoubtedly be a heavy data user, but also not wanting to singlehandedly bring my network down upon me, I'm looking for ways to keep my 3g data to a minimum.

So I thought, there must be a portable, plug-and-play USB wifi dongle out there that creates a small, localized hotspot. Such a thing would be perfect for me, as I have a computer at my job, but no wifi.

Any thoughts?

edit--As another thought, if I just hook the Streak up via USB to a computer, can it ride off the computer's internet connection without worrying about wireless?

Yes, i have the solution

http://www.synetusa.com/

In short, its a USB Hotspot or Wifi adapter
It is virtually undetectable from IT (does not request a new IP from the network and no new MAC address)
Works now with all version of windows
You can select WEP, WPA, WPA2, Hide SSID, etc..
Up to 32 device
about 50$
etc.

I must warn you, some people have had trouble with it. I currently have 2 (lost one but found it back) and both worked on any computers and worked almost perfectly.
Software auto-installation may bug, so you reboot computer and its fine after. Things like that. but no biggie...

Anyways, i may sell you one of my dongle if you with. I dont need 2.
