      gerry

      thats the one that Sky are putting out, although they do also use the older versions, the WG111T ones are the better ones. there is one on an auction site cheaper than that, but I'm not sure if I am allowed to give out the url. its not ebay

      Sky siad they could order an adaptor for me but it would take a few weeks to get to me, so just went out to PC World and pick that one up.

      Yeah PCWorld, notoriously expensive for stuff like that unless they have an offer on. The one from sky if you get the WG111T looks to be the best offer, is there any P&P charged?

      I have the WG111T but it is good at losing the connection and I have had to reinstall software at least twice and keep re plugging it in. I now have a Thompson Speedtouch 121G (Wireless 802 adapter very sweet and well behaved.

      sky charge 20 plus 3.50 P&P for there wireless adapter and its a netgear wg111t. I also have one the same make but not from sky and it has worked fine for me although don't use them for windows ME cause to be honest tryin to configure it is like tryin to get blood out of a stone lol i am wif NTL like but i am using the ethernet through a 10 meg connection and there is another computer connected to my connection also through ethernet and they are comin both from a netgear router which is plugged into the NTL modem
