We just purchased our first home and our reg. wired networking is no longer an option. Our main computer can be directly hooked up to the internet, upstairs in the living room, but the second computer will have to be downstairs in the recroom, almost directly, but not quite, underneath the main hook up.
I am looking at d-link and Linksy's, there are not aLOT of different wireless routers available, but these are what im thinking of.
D-Link DI-624 AirPlusExtreme G Router
Linksys WRT54GS Speed Boost Wireless Router
NetGear WNR834B Wireless N Router
These are the three that are the most affordable and available in my area.
As for the PCI cards,
D-Link DWL-G650 Wireless PCI Card
Linksys WMP54GS Speed Boost Wireless PCI Card
I cant seem to find any netgear cards. There is only one store here that carries the NetGear router, (which i was thinking is a good one, from what Ive read about it on cnet) but I cant find ANY netgear cards.
We move out of town this weekend, and when we do that, we will be even further away from any stores that carry these items and I was really hoping to be able to purchase them before we move so that my three teenagers, husband and myself dont have to go without internet for long. The cable company is coming to hook up the ent on Monday.
Any suggestions of simple wireless router/card combos?
