Any of you tech heads got advice on the best (and affordable) card to hook a desktop up to wireless?
Whatever works mate... personally I have been thinking about getting one of the USB keys that do it for about $30. Just plug it in to any computer and its wireless. http://search.ebay.com.au/search/search.dll?from=R40&satitle=usb%2C+WiFi
So they do the same job do they? I've seen quite a few of them going for nix on Ebay.
yup same thing. Its a hell of a lot easier than opening the computer and popping one into the PCI ports. I need to get one for my arcade machine but keep putting it off
I just got a wireless usb key yesterday, it works well.
how much did you pay for yours byso?
I got a 108 for $70-
fark!!!! ebay is like so much cheaper dude and they all do the same thing
108 not 54 champ!
Where'd you get it from Byso? Dell?
yeah still pointless because a 54 would have connected....you just love spending money dont you?
108 is twice as fast. If I'm transferring 4 gig of files then it will make a difference For the difference of 1/2 the speed why stuff around to save 30 or 40 bucks? Matabele have a look at the other ADSL modem thread. If you can get the same modem/router cheaper NEW i'd like to see it!
lol do you honestly think you will see a speed difference between 54 and 108????/ good luck to you champ but your pouring money down the drain
if you can notice a hundredth of a second, the world must move very slowly for you!
but its moving twice the data. I suppose your still using a 800 mhz celeron by your reckoning. Dan you know allot about IT for a hairdresser
lol nah I have a centrino at home and a p4 at work! Whether you are moving twice the data or not, you wouldn't notice the difference between a 108 and a 54 unless perhaps you had multiple machines copying data through the same connection or fromt he same router. It isn't like with network cards with 10/10 and 10/100. You literally will not notice the difference
I've seen the difference first hand. Much quicker if i'm moving 2 or 4 gb of files. Maybe not if its. 100kb files etc or internet usage.
yeah well if you can justify the need $80 worth of moving 4GB files good luck to you But I dare say you are acting more ona whim the necessity
I don't stuff around champ for the sake of $30-
