Glad this has come up.


Can someone answer a couple of Q's for an old fogie?

my notebook has wifi built in and the OH's computer has wireless connectivity and the main 'puter (Mine) is wired to the wireless router.

What might I possibly need one of these for.

I ask, as I have a Belkin wireless 'G' adapter and wonder about keeping it (just in case) or Fleabaying it.

Heat given incidentally as it appears a good deal. (Callled sucking up.:) )

these are used to connect a computer via the wireless to a network

why might you want one?
1) your computer does not have built in wireless
2) you are upgrading your wireless network from b/g to N (will require a N router)

otherwise they could be handy for a spare if the wireless in your laptop packs up

Thanks..ordered

Cheers Alex

Will keep my Belkin then as they only get about 3-4 quid at auction.

Thanks, frees up a PCI slot removing the silly Abit thing.

There's another reason!

bought one to give it a try

I decided to research the diffference between adapters and just HAD to post this.

I got this last time it was posted and have had no probs with it so would recommend. Heat added.

Does anyone know how to change your delivery address on 7dayshop?

Err..... click on 'my account' then 'edit account'

Just had an email from 7dayshop:
"Very sorry we are unable to offer delivery to an alternative address to the address registered with the card. Regards"
So ccard address only.

Ah I see, I didnt realise you meant different to your CC address.

Can anyone tell me whether its better to get either a USB dongle like this or stump up the cash to go for a PCMCIA card for a laptop without N capabilities?

Brill. Just what I needed for my daughters very expensive but ridiculously built laptop. DON'T FORGET TO GO THROUGH TOPCASHBACK for 2.02% back! Heat added.

I'ge got SMC wireless N in the drawing room nettop but signall is still week. the modem is in the far bedroom & there's another bedroom & a kitchen in between. Is it worth upgrading the BE standard modem or getting a powerline router?

wonders if this will work with a WDTV live?

Thanks, frees up a PCI slot removing the silly Abit thing.



personally i'd much rather a PCI device. I'd suspect it'd be a bit faster than a USB for recieving data and handling it.

Also it's alot less likely to get stolen.

I'd rather use USB ports for memory sticks etc rather than a wireless USB which could easilly get knocked out and potentially corrupt a download you're in the middle of.

PCI all the way. That said, for the money this is a great deal. Just cannot understand someone wanting to free up a PCI slot - what else are you going to use a PCI slot for?? aside from a sound card, wireless card, LAN card?? Most mobos have built in sound & LAN nowadays.

Has this got the best range possible? Or are there better? My office borders on poor reception to none, and just wondered if this can be improved (Without moving any hardware)? I already have an N dongle, and just wondered if it could be bettered!

Coudlnt say how good this is in comparison to anything as Ive only got built in wireless to compare to (and both have a strong signal anywhere in the house) but I can say that if you do get this, then a USB extension cable definitely increases the strength.

Something like this
amazon.co.uk/Bel…4WP
but it doesnt need to be as long as this, maybe just 0.5 meters or so

pci slot can be used for more usb ports or even a graphics card

with some motherboards only having 2? pci slots you can fill them in no time

also some cards (graphics especially) can cover adjacent slots meaning a single card will basically use 2 slots


also having the wireless as a USB means you can get better signal by using a usb extension to move it away from interference (like you do with the TV)

The PCI device came free with the motherboard from Scan. It does the job, but the aerial is wired and requires sitting on the desktop to get full signal.

Stolen... if someone broke into my house and only took my wireless USB adapter, I'd consider that a good result - all my portable devices have wireless built in, this is for my desktop solely.

My tower has two USB slots on top and the four on the back (at least), so hardly running short.

I've also got a rather beastly 8800 GTS that had to be modified to fit in my case and the space around the PCI-E slot is limited due to having a Micro ATX board.
