The place I might be moving to has a Netgear wireless router. I think it was this one. As the security bloke said it was a Netgear 108Mbps Wireless router. I checked on my mates laptop who lives there to see the transfer rate he was getting by going to ADSL Test. He was getting 2mb down and 300 (something, 364kb?) up.
But the thing is, currently where I live my internet is with BT and I have a BT wireless router of which I connect my 360 and PC straight into. I need to get a wireless PCI adapter for my PC for when I move to the new place (considering I won't be able to have a router in my room, the place has wireless there), but I'm not sure which one to get . Some are quite expensive e.g. £30 and some are quite alot cheaper. I really don't want to spend alot just for a darn wireless adapter, but I don't want it to be something that's insufficient.
If anyone can help us with some advice and links to some good wireless PCI adapters that would work with a Netgear router that would be great.
Another question. I don't want to fork out £50+ yet for a wireless adapter for my 360. So I was wondering (hopes this comes out right), would I be able to connect my 360 into my ethernet card in my PC via a ethernet crossover cable, have my PC with a wireless adapter so it can pick up the wireless internet signal, and thus my PC can use the internet and my 360 can use the internet for Xbox Live?
Lastly (phew! ). Since the router would not be in my room and connected to my PC, if I ever have port issues and thus would need to forward ports. Would I still be able to do it? If so how?
Help much appreciated, sorry for the lengthy read and all the questions!
