post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi All

I have no experience in this sorta stuff... Building a gaming rig for my mate and he's after a card or usb to connect to his flats wireless router since a network cable is not an option..

I found this: http://www.tp-link.com/products/prod...odel=TL-WN851N

Whould this do the trick?

Cheers

Yes, just about any wireless adapter would do what your wanting. The one you linked too seems to have good specs, so I don't know why it wouldn't work.

The one you linked would work perfectly fine. To get the most out of your connection, you would want to have a Wireless-N router aswell.

check where the main drivers are developed. such as ralink (which is better) or realtek (which at times has issues) I have the rosewill rnx n2lx bgn 300mbps dual antenna, however auto setup program that came on the disc was useless. I decided to go to realtek to get the drivers. When trying to get it to work on xp it was non functional. tested on ubuntu worked immediately. windows 7 it works no problem
