Router and adapter reccomendations Tags: Routers Connection Wireless Networking Last response: July 24, 2008 9:32 PM in Wireless Networking Share Jamalarm July 24, 2008 5:02:11 PM Hey guys, Me and my friends are moving into a shared house next year and we need to choose a router and adapters for the internet. Needing to connect, there will be: - My desktop (near the router, so i'll be using a patch cable) - Two more desktops needing to connect wirelessly - One laptop that can only connect at 802.11g - A PS3 - An Xbox360 - A Wii Our internet connection will probably be around 11mbps (theoretical maximum of 24). Could anyone reccomend me a good set of adapters and a router that will work with all of these? Also: If we get a 802.11n router, will we actually have to set it slower for the 802.11g devices to work properly? Or can n and g work in harmony? Thanks, More about : router adapter reccomendations Anonymous July 24, 2008 9:32:02 PM As far as brand is concerned most people trust Netgear and Linksys and you can rely upon them to still be around when you need firmware or driver updates. Netgear has a pretty good support forum. If you have Vista check with the retailer about Vista compatibility -- still causing problems with wireless equipment. I would avoid using USB wireless adapters -- PCI has better range and fewer problems. Don't know about wireless N and your toys -- they tend to use old technology (even 802.11b) but N equipment usually has a b&g setting. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
