There isn't a particular one you should need, any 802.11g usb adapter should work with any 802.11g router. However with the different chipsets out there, it's often better to match the brand of the adapter and router.

I tend to buy from somewhere like ebuyer where I can read reviews to see if people are having any compatibility issues.

If it is a laptop, the chances are there is a network adaptor already built in. Desktop- you will have to probably buy one. Tell us what you have and we can help....

I tried connecting my laptop with a USB adaptor but had a very poor signal.I borrowed a 108Mbps Wireless PCMCIA LAN Card and it was excellent so I bought one on ebay for £10.58 inc delivery take a look.
