I am thinking about getting a Wireless PCMCIA card for my laptop (specs below), but I have no idea which makes are better; and what type to get? I don't want to spend a lot and I am buying from here:<br />

<br />
Problem is there is so many to choose from so I dunno what to go for. Something that will give me good range, but budget/performance ratio being high if you get me.<br />
<br />
--Specs of laptop--<br />
<br />
Mobile P4 1.9GHz<br />
256MB RAM (upgrading to 512MB)<br />
30GB 4200rpm HDD<br />
32 GeForce 420 Go<br />
<br />

It seems quite good and cheap, but then again I could get the Belkin 125g PCMCIA for £0.20 more and it has 60m range whereas the Buffalo only has 50m. And I heard that Belkin are <i>meant</i> to be reliable. Thanks for recomending it though <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

I would pay extra and get the D-Link <a href="http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=462631" target="_blank">DWA-645 RangeBooster</a> as my dad uses this and I think its great compared to the £10 Easylink one I got <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
