hi ppl

ill be honest i know very little about wireless setups as ive always been with virgin cable until now. i just got my o2 b/b package with the wireless III box and its all setup and ready to go but ive heard the wireless box u get with the package isnt that great so was wondering if a few of u could recommend a good wireless 'n' router and adapters. i will need to be able to use x3 pc's.

thx in advance

is there a difference between usb and pci performance wise if theres isnt then ill happily take the sides off my comps and plug them in as theyll be a few quid cheaper. been lookin at these http://www.tp-link.com/products/product_des.asp?id=155 or http://www.tp-link.com/products/product_des.asp?id=137

thx earlstreetblue for the recommendation looks good

had a look at the devolo's and tbh i dunno how good the electrics are in my house its a fairly old house and never had any probs in the last 20 yrs but seems alot depends on the wiring,

About the only sensible reason for choosing a USB adapter over PCI is that you can put it on the end of a USB cable and move it around for a better signal. But then you can get PCI cards with separate antennas if reception is a problem anyway.

Personally I've found the O2 provided router pretty good.

Is there are reason you need an N router? Will you be transfering large files internally?
