nice might get 1 for my belkin n1 wireless router..:thumbsup:

Hi,
I have an old belkin 54g adaptor (I think it's called that) which can barely pick up the signal from the router and cuts out sometimes if my bedroom door is closed. Would this solve the problem by any chance (please excuse my ignorance). If not, does any1 have any cheap solutions.
Thanks in advance

cheers for posting :)

hi guys

ok so i have a wireless network going on already at home which i connect to wirelessly via my laptop

my laptop is oldish but still does most things very very well, but i think due to its age the wireless card is maybe a little outdated, makes things like iplayer and youtube a bit slow

if i buy this will it improve/boost my connectivity to my network and give me quicker speeds?

thanks

You'd get a better connection than the belkin just by switching your PC off.

Those belkin 54G adaptors were the worst things ever invented, I gave mine away on another forum 2 days ago for the price of postage.

I bought two of these they were worst adapters i ever bought.

I've been using this same model for 6 months now... Honestly, I cannot fault it. In my house we have just the 1 phone socket and I really cannot be bothered messing around with extension cables or routing a 25m ethernet/dsl cable around the house, so I need to rely on wireless for my desktop.

This little thing has served me well... On Windows 7 it's literally plug and play - no drivers needed. It has not once dropped wireless connection for me - this thing is rock solid reliable. Only time I ever have issues is every now and then when my wireless signal drops really low, but that's interference related as a quick channel change and i'm back at full signal.

Device is tiny... can sit on top of a 2pence coin. Plug this into the back of your desktop or nettop and you'll never even know it's there. Ohh and the device gives off absolutely zero heat! I was worried such a small device would overheat quickly and cause issues, but not so... I've got my PC on 24/7 - even on 24hour-straight download-at-max-speed-download-frenzy theres no heat or issues.

If I ever buy a second PC or if this one ever gives out, or if anyones ever after a wifi adapter... 100% every single time i'll recommend this Edimax. Absolutely one of the best networking devices I've ever had.

BTW, can you tell I really like this thing?

A wireless N card will only improve your transmission speeds if your router supports the N standard. If not then it'll be using the same Wireless G signal that your current cards are. There is a lot of variability for how strong a signal cards and their ariels receive - this may be better or worse than your current cards but you'd have to read some reviews to get an idea of how good this model is. The Mini size is a bad indicator though - means a smaller ariel is packed inside.

You also have to remember that if you're only using wireless to transmit internet traffic to your laptop/PC then the speed will only be as good as the incoming internet connection. For example, if you have 8Meg broadband then a 54Meg wireless G set-up is fine. Wireless N is only useful if you are streaming movies or moving large files around the network.

Explain this one then, I have an 8meg connection, wireless G card in a desktop achieves speedtests of around 2meg, Macbook on the other hand which I believe is N, pulls in 6-7meg in the same position
#15
Does this unit work with the SKY Broadband system?. Thanks.
#16
i have one of these there good
if you need one of these they are as good as they come
#17

Well, your wireless G card is supposed to work at 54Mbps, but there could be a number of factors that are restricting this. Wireless N cards generally have greater range regardless of the connection speed, so if you at the very edge of a wireless G range then you may have a very weak signal and replacing with N will help regardless of the router capability. Having said that the device above is unlikely to make any difference.

There are other reasons that you may be experiencing different connection speeds. For example your ISP may be throttling your connection so you get different speeds at different times; or it could even be that you have lots of plug-ins or toolbars on your PCs browser, which aren't in Safari.

The simple underlying truth however, is that if you have 8Meg coming into your house, then all things being equal wireless G should be capable of pushing the data around.

Nice one thanks

Seen this in asda a few days ago for £8.50, Huyton asda near liverpool, dont know if its still that price
#21
This seems to do the same as the Edimax adaptor but is a few quid cheaper:

What factors are likely to be restricting the G card, it is a PCI one which I got as I assumed it would be better than the USB type with having a bigger aerial.

Why is this device unlikely to make a difference if it is an N device or have I missed something?

The connection does not appear to be throttled, I know the majority probably do, I have been with some ISP's who do in the past.

I've ran these test one after the other from the exact same location in the house, which is not far from the router, have also tested several times and the results are always near on identical.

Also done via the same browser as I use FF on the MAC

Whats the best dongle to use with O2 wireless broadband? I am currently using an old Belkin which isnt supported bu Win7, and think it may be contributing towards my Bsod's :(

I have o2 broadband... Not the o2 router though - using a Netgear DGN2000 and this adapter is a perfect match for the router. I did use this adapter with the o2 Wireless Box III for about a month before changing routers and again, it worked fine... any issues I had came from the router itself and not the adapter (hence why I switched to a Netgear router)

be aware that unless you're able to get 40Mhz mode out of your other wireless N kit you'll only get 72Mbps max from this.

From the spec:

•11n (20MHz): MCS0-7 (up to 72Mbps)
•11n (40MHz): MCS0-7 (up to 150Mbps)

So if, like me, you've got a BT Homehub v2 you won't get 150Mbps :x

My dongle arrived today. It has a short USB extending cable that you can add to boost the reception. Got it working pretty quickly, needed to reboot my PC, initially the unit kept cutting off/connecting every few seconds, worked fine after reboot.
This was for my old Dell Desktop that mas been moved to another room after my Vostro arrived. Already have homeplugs for my WDTV/xbox/tv setup. Didn't think my second desktop really needed a strong connection, the dongle will do for now.:thumbsup:
#28
Excellent buy and worth money, easy to set up.
#29
Can anyone tell me if you need to have a Wireless N router to benefit from this? (I suspect the answer is yes..)

Or would I receive better reception on my Wireless G network?

This is now £9.99 at play.
