There are four flavours of WiFi: a, b, g, & n.
A is oldest and slowest, N is the newest and fastest.

My recommendation to you is to purchase the cheaper variation of N called N150 or 150N.
This means that it's maximum connection speed to a WiFi network is 150 mega-bits per second. This is half the speed of the fastest N variation.

However, what the salesmen won't tell you at the store is that 150 megabits per second is still at least ten times faster than a typical 'very fast' internet connection. So why pay double to have a 300 megabit connection to your router, when you have only 15 megabits possible from the internet?

Where I live the N150 usb adaptors & routers are much cheaper than N300; this is why I recommend them. I recently bought a Belkin N150.

I hope that helps.

Does the asus cm5571 have wireless capabilities

Hi there
According to this webpage which gives the specs for the Asus, it does not have wireless capability built in
It can easily be used with a wireless network connection either by adding a wireless network PCI adaptor, or a USB wireless network adaptor. Neither of these are expensive and the USB adaptor is often preferred as it only needs a spare USB port on the machine and the computer does not need to be opened up as it does for the PCI adaptor.
Hope this helps

Wont allow me to share my internet , its hooked up to wifi i want to run a cord to my xbox to give it internet possible?

Yes this is possible. You will need to bridge connections between your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet ports.

Navigate to Network connections, select both your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet adaptor. Now right click and select "bridge connections"

Take care!

I set a WEP key for the USB, now it's not allowing me to connect, Is their anyways to reset the WEP key of the dongle ? Please Help me.

If it's a standard WIFI dongle it would have come with an installation disk or on-board self installing drivers and (usually) a WIFI app which I presume you used to set the WEP key. If it's a modern one you will be using a MINIMUM of WPA2 and TKIP or AES encryption. Try running the setup app again with one of these settings. The app SHOULD give you the choice of setting up encryption & passwords using windows instead (windows zero config usually) by right clicking on wifi symbol in bottom R of screen. I find that more reliable. Check the maker's spec for the relevent protocols. Good Luck.

I have a um175 pantech and can only connect on the desktop and not on my laptob.

There's a few things that can cause wifi connections to not work.

The most unlikely is just an incompatibility between your router and the wifi USB adaptor. There's not much that can be done then, except changing to a different adaptor or router instead.

Things you could check include:-

Make sure the router allows both kinds of wifi speed (B & G types - just to avoid errors while you test it)
If using any WEP passwords, make 100% sure you are using the right one - many people get a password just slightly wrong but are sure they haven't.
Make sure the router signal is strong enough to connect properly.
Make sure your router is able to have enough wifi connections (many are limited to 4, and neighbours may be using your connection too! pushing the router past its 4 limit).
All routers can have security settings tha can block in many ways, so if you didn't set it up yourself originally, whoever did may have put extra settings in place for protection.
Try having your laptop connect to another router - maybe at a cafe, library or friends house. This will narrow down the fact that it's your own router doing something wrong.

The first thing I would try before anything else is:-

If possible, connect using LAN a cable first, as that should work instantly - note that your firewall (if using Windows) may automatically block internet connections, and that would need sorting out in Control Panel first. You would usually use any CAT 5 or CAT 6 network cable (any length), of a 'cross-over' type. A cable of this type is sometimes included in the routers box if bought as new.

Good luck with it.
