Updating to a Wireless N Network

Likes # 0

Hi, i am a virgin media customer thinking of upgrading my old bog standard Netgear network to a more modern one.

I think i will go with Belkin N600 DB, any thoughts ?

But my main point is will i need to update my PC's wireless adaptor which is an old Netgear WG111T ? and do i need to get the belkin N600 wireless adaptor or can i get a cheaper N adaptor.

The PC is not the main reason i am buying the network and i dont need super speed on it, i am buying for TV, X-box, Ipod and latop purpose.

Any advice gratefully recieved.

Some info here. You will need an 'N' adapter to get the better wireless speed. Any dongle should do. As for the laptop, x-box, etc. I don't know what standards they are at but they are backward compatible anyway.

In my experience getting the matching pci card will give you better speeds.If speed is not a priority then stick with your Netgear WG111T card.
