I have a souped up dell E520 (specs below) and have so far been using a NETGEAR router DG834Gv3 (54mbps) in combination with a USB wifi adapter by the same brand, NETGEAR WG111v2. However, recently my connection seems much less consistent and slower.
I have taken several steps to ensure my computer is entirely free of Malware, so it is not that. I have changed nothing on my computer except i have installed WoW: The Burning Crusade, but i have been playing the original WoW before that with no problems.
I am wondering whether i might have simply over used the NETGEAR USB adaptor as it is rarely off and i am consistently using alot of bandwidth through online gaming, downloads etc. Would a wireless PCI card better suit a desktop and provide a better service and if so, what are your suggestions for cards suitable for my PC/ router?
Thanks so much for your help,
Dell Desktop E520
MS XP Professional SP 2
nVidia GForce 7300 LE (is it worth upgrading this to 7600 GT?)
Intel Core Duo 1.86Ghz
