      Recommendation for wireless card

      Can anyone recommend a card for my laptop to enable me to use the wireless aspect of the Netgear V2 DG934G router? Or is it best to buy the adapter from Sky?

      Thanks,

      Ian

      Sky will sell you a USB device -- if your laptop has a PCMCIA (aka PC Card) slot I would recommend going with PCMCIA. Usually sensible to stick to same brand as router to (at least) avoid terminological confusions. The Netgear WG511 has performed well for me for a couple of years.

      For the few pounds extra you may be as well going for the T Model It will not make your internet speed faster but it is reputed to have a better coverage.
