    all the networking parts are in my room, and it makes a mess. my dog likes to go over there and sniff around and i dont want him chewing the cords, so i had the idea to move the crap somewhere out of the way. unwilling to run a cat5 line to my laptop, i went the wireless way. i installed a Linksys Wireless-G card in the slot on my notebook. not being a fan of Linksys's software, i opped to avoid it and use the windows drivers... which was a fantastic idea. the card installed on its own and opened the wireless screen automatically. i connected to my network and its been running flawlessly ever since. 3 days and counting. im quite pleased. now i need to buy a shelf and move the networking stuff out of my room. both me and my dog will be happy

    D-link is my personal favorite. Linksys is ok, but since i have't used it my self, i'd rather stay away.

    By the way, Why did you go with "G" The new N routers and Cards are way better. And have less chance of dissconnecting.

    ewww d-link -.-;;
    Probably G because its cheaper. N, althoguh it isn't approved yet, does run pretty reliably and fast.
    is it just me, or do newbies ALWAYS have the worst fucking grammar and spelling known to man?!

    I have the same Linksys G router and it's a snap to install and configure...I went with that Clearwire ISP and it's working great in my house. no wires to install, decent download & upload times etc, etc.

    I'll see you on the Dark Side of the Moon

    I just recently went wireless a couple weeks ago myself. I also didn't use the software bundled with the card, and yah everything worked perfect for me too... only problem i have is when playing CS, every 10-15 seconds or so I will get a monster lag spike... almost makes the game unplayable =/

    "don't fucking ask me. i don't know..."

    its been almost 3 weeks since i installed the card and its been great so far. a bit slower then my ethernet connection, but atleast now i dont have to look at my network gear in my room. which was the main purpose for going wireless: to get the wireless equipment out of my room. now its mounted on a shelf near the middle of my house.
