hi all...me again

i have just picked up a new-ish pc tower ( freebie :thumbsup: )...its a compaq vision AMD running windows 7 ( yup, finally caught up with the rest of the world )
its got 4 gb ram and a 500 and something gb hard drive....very happy with it but there is no wireless adapter thingy...so, can anyone recommend something, adapter or pci card..it must be something that will connect to a virgin media router as the one i have in my other pc wont connect to it ( something to do with it being an 80211g instead of an 80211n according to the tech guy at virgin ) so cant swap it over to my new pc..had a look on ebay but unsure which one to go for.

i really wish i understood more about these things so i wouldnt have to keep bothering you all :blush:
anyhoo, am off for 2 weeks so no rush for a reply


your advice is, as always, gratefully received


regards
nige


PS.. will probably be bugging you all with lots more questions in the near future :lol:

Hello vistasucks

Couple of options http://www.play.com/...324|prd:3518324 or a PCI-E X1 type which may be a better option depending on the available slots on the MB http://www.amazon.co...ASIN=B006BSPTAQ
