      Which wireless card?

      Hi,

      I have Sky+, but I have just signed up to Sky Mid Broadband (was with Virgin Media - 20MB). I under stand I will be getting a newer router which is 108 compared to the older 54 speed routers. Previously I had the cable modem beside my pc, and wired, but now I will be using the wireless functionality (but do not have a wireless card).

      Can somebody recommend a good wireless card for these routers, or does it not really matter?

      Thanks

      P.S My OS is Windows Vista Premium, however might setup an old XP Pro pc too......both desktops!

      If you think you might need support with the wireless card then you'd be best advised to get the one which Sky supply. If you use others and have problems Sky are inclined to blame the card and stop supporting.

      Do SKY have a shop or information page that you can point me to?

      I had a good look before I found this site, and could not find anything even on SKY's site. Which card do they recommend?
