      I've got my router and my BB goes live (hopefully) later this week and I will need a card to get my desktop PC wirelessly connected....

      There are plenty to choose from here. It is usually best to go for the same manufacturer as the router (e.g. WG311). It may be worth getting a desktop antennae as well if the PC is situated quite far from the router (no point having an antennae at the back of a PC).

      If you don't feel up to putting in a PCI card, you can always use a USB Adapter Some say these are not as good as the PCI type, but they do have the advantage of being easily moved from one machine to another.

      If you do decide to buy, don't pay the premium on 108, 125 and higher adapters, they will be very little, if any, better than a 54g which your router will support.

      One final point, a wired ethernet connection will always be better and more secure than a wireless one, so if at all possible, forget wireless and connect by wire.

      Also, if you want a wired connection but don't want the hassle of trailing wires everywhere.... consider HomePlug adapters.

      Yes it is easier but its less stable, very CPU hungry and the technology is not that developed yet..
