Wireless card to router with different brand?

well im thinking of purchasing a D-link wireless router, as its on sale right now, but i was wondering if maybe a Linksys wireless adapter card for my pc would work with the D-link router? also if i hook up the wireless router into a wired adapter, would that work too?

  1. Shouldn't make any difference who the mfgs are. Yes, you can hardwire a computer to a router if that's what your asking
  2. well my question is if i have a modem connected to a wired router which is connected to my computer, can i also connect a wireless router to the wired router, cuz i heard hooking the computer to a wired router gives more speed than a wireless router, so i was wondering if i could have a wired and wireless router running on the same internet

    All wireless routers also allow for hardwiring so really don't need 2 routers. If you already have a router that isn't wireless, I'd just replace it. Generally you're supposed hardwire one computer to a wireless router anyway.
  4. so will wiring a desktop to a wireless router affect internet speed a lot?
  5. Could speed it up a bit but if you have a strong wireless connection not real noticeable. You will have fewer problems with dropped connections. I prefer having my main computer hardwired, although I really don't have problems with my wireless. I'm using a ZyXEL x-550 router, which I think is the main reasons I don't have many wireless problems, very good router
  6. alright thanks just needed the reassurance lol
