    So.. let me get this right... there is not such thing as a factory built (on now days laptops) 108mbs wireless adapter in the market? 


    Im forced to buy this from netgear in order to get 108mbs? 


    One more thing... I also have a external hard drive that is wired in to this router... now, when I replaced my old one (a Belkin wireless g) that storage device is not being detected by the router any longer.


    It seems to me that I have to unblock the LAN ports or mess with the router's firewall but I'm not quite sure how to go about that...


    you input in this is appreciated.


    Thanks!

In order for you to maximize the 108mbs speed from this router you also need to get a wireless adapter from Netgear that suports 108mbs speed because that is a propietary to each manufacturer like Netgear, Linksys and other wireless networkking manufacturer....

Hope that helps...........

    The speed that is being offered by your router will only work with a wireless adapter from Netgear also and almost all laptop now has a built in 54mbs speed, you need to configure the router to allow the external drive, it will be better to call Netgear to configure the router to allow the drive...

Hi,

It's true that using router and adapter of the same brand will give you maximum performance. And YES, you can confuse both router and adapter. No matter whats brand, you can boost your adapter performance by changing its link speed or duplex to 100M/Full Duplex. This will gives you maximum performance then Auto Function of the Duplex.
Logically its NOT True but Practically I have done it many time.

Internet anywhere


Your best solution would be to purchase a data package from one of the top Wireless phone providers. They have modems that access their wireless networks, and enable you to transfer data at reasonably good speeds in most locations across the country. Regular Wi-Fi is not going to be available in as many locations as the wireless data network is, so if connectivity is crucial you'll want the wireless data network. Most of the wireless plans are between $59 and $99 per month depending on how much data you want to transfer.

good luck

Wireless internet card for DELL C600 - ?


personally i would go for a usb wireless adapter as many people have driver problems with the pcmcia slot and are unable to get it to recognise the card, whereas usb is much simpler to use. All the usb type adapters are much the same they dont have to be the same make as your router, but buy the same transfer speed type, for example if you have a 108MBPS router buy the compatible 108 MBPS adapter as a 54MBPS adapter will reduce the transfer speed capabilty, not to be confused with your connection speed.

you may struggle if youve got win 95 on it, and only if you got usb ports,go for a wireless usb adapter if you can find one, as sometimes the pcmcia driver can be a bit fiddly and cause problems with pcmcia wireless cards. Although there are win 95 expansion cards available most are only 11MBPS transfer speeds as apposed to the 54MBPS and 108MBPS cards now available for other operating systems

Wpnt121 and wpn824v2


the rangemax may be 108mbps transfer speed, but are your wireless network adapters able to run at 108mbps?, as most earlier ones will only run at 54 mpbs, especially notebook wireless adapters. You will only gain on 108mbps transfer speed when file transfering or streaming to each pc, it will not speed up your internet connection, although you probably already are aware of that.

NetGear Super G 108Mbps Wireless Firewall


If you are connecting wirelessly, then it's more than likely that your wireless card or usb dongle cannot connect as you router is probably set at 108 mbps. Your receivers are more than likely only capable of connecting at 54 mbps so change the streaming rate on your router to 54 mbps. This will not alter your internet connection speed as the 108 mbps only refers to the rate of streaming speed on your local area connection (from one pc to another)
