Question about 2wire (1000-000005-002) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
Hi, just got set up with ATT 6Mb DSL internet service and that included a 2Wire Wireless Gateway router. Using it now with ethernet cable to lhook to laptop and that's working great. Have another laptop in the house, and one other desktop and would rather have the laptops operate as wireless.
Would love to know what wireless adapter that you would suggest that consider buying, and/or specs for what I need. Some friends have suggested a USB version, but the reviews online are all over the board on technology and the prices are equally all over the board. I've heard you can get a decent device for $20-30, but don't know what I should do or spend. And does the wireless adapter interfere with the DSL speed? And can the cable be used for the desktop and wireless for the two laptops simultaneously? Thanks, Charlie.
I agree with the above. I would go with a pcmcia card and not a usb adaptor. usb adaptors are not reliable and you will notice a speed decrease with a usb adaptor. Plus a usb adaptor sticks out more that a pcmcia card which means it can be damaged easier. WIth the home portal you can have multiple devices running at the same with with very little, if any decrease in speed.

I would go with card slot adapters, you can find many different ones but I used Dynex 802.11G card even running Win98, I've seen then cheap on sites like eBay. You can use acble and wireless at the same time and with 6MP, you will not notice any speed loss unless you are running live feeds on all 3 computer
