Question about Televison & Video
I need help with buying the least expensive connections that will work with my 5 years old 2 computer network with windows XP. I want to hook up to a wireless broadband internet signal sent out by my city.
You will simply need a wireless PCI card.
Find out info from your city - as far as the speed of the signal... A/B G or N.
Any card will do. Your PC more than likely has an empty PCI slot for the wireless card.
It will look like this....
XP is plug and play O/S. It will recognize the device when you re-start after installing it.... and automatically configure the drivers.
These cards can be had new & used on eBay or sometimes on clearance at tigerdirect and newegg.
You would want to get the same speed card as network. The speeds were developed in this order...
A N card will give you the best speed and reliability.

PCI card is one solution, another one is Wireless USB.
Its easy to use, you dont need to open your pc to install, you just connect to a usb-port and install the drivers. And its cheap.
Manufactures of wirless usb is Belkin, D-link, Linkys, Netgear and many others...
It takes 3 minits to install and be online:)
