that is what I already have to connect to the internet, so is there any advantage in the purchase of the wireless card over what I already have. sorry to sound a numpty but just cannot get my head around the whole wireless business, I am currently on a laptop so get a bit confused when I want to connect via my desktop
Fraid not the desktop is in another building. Does this mean that I would need a seperate internet connection for my desktop or would a wireless card enable me to be able to connect via the router without the need to be in the same building?
Another building o.O Are you sure? How far away is this other building? Is it like your shead or something? If its like down the road... then the Rooter wont be able to go that far So... Tell us where abouts your buildings are and how close they are to each other
It's where the router is. If there is alot of "building" between the router and the wireless adapter (laptop or desktop) you may not get a connection - or its strength may be decreased. Can your laptop connect to the router from the basement ? If yes your desktop will probably do so to If no then wireless is probably not an option, without some more kit
