Thinking of getting a new computer and would like to make my 10 year old Dell Dimension 3000 ??? wireless to have two computers in the house. What is the best way to do this? I have a Linksys router N series. Running XP on the old computer. Anymore information needed I will have to get it when I get home. Which is best? a PCI adapter or USB. The old computer will be setup about 15' from the router, going thru one wall. What is a good brand or the best adapter at a cheap price?

Thanks,
pdl2

Hi pdl2,

A USB adapter would be the simplest option because you just plug it in to an open USB port, rather than having to install it internally like a PCI card would require. Either way there are plenty of makes/models that work well.

Here's one from TP-Link, I've had good experiences with this brand. It's cheap and should be plenty capable enough along with drivers for XP listed.
