I was wandering if any of you had any ideas of what wireless router and what wireless  PCI network adapter or NIC, I should go with or maybe just what brand is one of the better ones to choose from.. I have 2 home pc's and I have them around 50 ft away from each other on cable internet, I did see a linkys router that was a cable modem and router together.. would that be a better choice??  I have been reading that this 802.11b or g is the way to go but I am really new to all this wireless stuff...  so hope someone can help me out with some info..

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>




...I uses a Linksys router an' dropped a Linksys wireless NIC in the fiancee's machine an' things run smooth...give 'er a hook, I says... :lol:


...WHO LUVS YA, BABY!!...

802.11b is antique. You'll want a switch/router capable of 802.11g, or better still, 802.11a. Most of them are backwards-compatible, so an 802.11a-capable router will actually be labeled as an 802.11a/b/g device.

Finally, everything is running. I'm particularly happy with the sound, although I'm not sure it's the card or the speakers or maybe some combe.

As promised, pictures.

It runs the max settings on FEAR at 1600x1200 with the lowest FPS 21. The test showed 5% less than 25fps, 75% 25-40fps, and 20% over 40fps. When I kept the resolution at 1600x1200 and made some minor quality adjustments, I managed a lowest fps of 37. Nice card so far. :Eldar's sharing his gaming joy with his homies who had his back: Thanks for the advice, homies.
