  1. Give me your opinion, please.

    I have no places for PCI or PCIE wireless card, but just USB.

    I just need the wireless USB with it own adapter stand, that will enable me to move the wireless adapter around to allow me to get stronger singal, anywhere.

    I was thinking about D-link dwa-130, but Im not sure yet.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you, Joebeard.

    So it's better to get 11.g to saves my money, since it's closest thing with the 11.n?

    it's 'better' because of compatibility and reliability across other vendors :)

    Seem I changed my decision on the USB.

    Look like I can use a wireless PCI card after all, could you suggest me a good wifi card, jobeard?

    Personally, I am not in love with Linksys and much prefer Netgear.

    IMO, the software really matters, but seldomly is discussed in the product literature.

    My laptop came with Realtek WiFi and the Config Free software is a delight -- but certainly hardware dependent.

    Well.. here's a good news...

    I borrowed my friend's DWA-130, and it works really good, so i'm happy now.

    Thanks for the posting on my thread.
