USB Wireless Adapter for Windows XP Pro and Vista Recommendations Please?

Can anyone recommend a good usb adapter that suits xp pro and vista?

I have a Linksys Wireless G router if that matters? Daughter uses a 3com wireless card for her laptop which works really well so was wondering if I should think about getting a 3com usb but they seem to be more expensive does it really make a difference?

Any recommendations would be appreciated :)

I would suggest NOT to buy any Belkin brand product, the wireless adaptors are very problematic, I recommend D-link and Netgear as both are quality, have great support and are very user friendly,

Whilst looking around I noticed there are some micro adapters are these ok? I just thought if its used with a laptop they wont stick out so much.

Do the bluetooth adapters do the same job getting you wirelessly onto the net but have bluetooth as well or are they a totally different thing? like this one

I havent found one yet that actually says xp pro they just say xp but I've read a few people saying they cant connect to some with xp pro

Karen4u, the adapters you posted a link to are bluetooth ones...they will not act as a wireless card, thus you won't be able to acess a wireless router off them.
Wireless adapters simply do not come that small yet, this is about as standard as you will get, and they ALL work with XP and vista:

btw there is absolutely NO difference in having XP pro, or home...as far as divers go; xp is xp.
