Online gaming via Wi-Fi

  1. Hey, I've been struggling trying to find out what I should use to increase my WiFi connection so I can play games like TF2 and Garry's Mod. I know, WiFi is terrible for online gaming, but I don't have too much other choices. I can't move my router and I'm using a desktop, not a laptop, so I cannot simply move my computer (I also can't move it due to the lack of space in my house).

    Anyways, I was wondering whether I should get a wireless repeater or a wireless adapter. I've somewhat singled it down to two different products (one a repeater and one an adapter) and just wanted to know if they were any good or if someone could suggest one for me.

    Why don't you try powerline adapters? Their bandwidth throughput is about the same as Wireless G, but they're definitely better with regards to your ping because you get far fewer dropped packets which means lag would be drastically reduced. Check out these. And click here to learn more about the technology.
