Wireless Adaptor Advice

Hi everyone, I'm a new user.
I have a BT Voyager 2091 wireless router which I want to place close to my BT master socket. 
I'd like some advice regarding which wireless adapters would be suitable for use with the router.
I use an HP Compaq Desktop PC.
Thanks

Re: Wireless Adaptor Advice

Most wireless devices all conform to the same standards nowadays. As such, it should not really matter what make of adapter you buy.
You can get a PCI adapter to fit internally to your PC or a USB adapter which would plug in, that's largely a matter of personal preference, and obviously depends on whether you're comfortable fitting internal cards yourself.

If you are going for a PCI adapter this one has the advantage of a separate aerial which you can move about to get  a better signal http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=152539
You don't need to buy it from Scan but it's one option
