Buying a desktop for bedroom


Hetti

Likes # 0

I'm thinking about buying a desktop to replace an old one we have in a upstairs bedroom, we have had lots of problems with internet connections with the present machine and have bought a external wireless adapter (I think that's what it is called) but that also loses internet connection often and we need to sync it back to the Virgin super hub downstairs very often and we are tired of it. Its not just the fact we have problems connecting to the internet the PC is really at the end of its life.

My question is what does the new PC need to have the best chance of finding/connecting to the downstairs modem? I realize laptops are better for finding/connecting wirelessly but I really need a desktop PC.

For Homeplugs, look on the Ebuyer or 7dayshop websites. There are some good reviews on the devices these two company's are offering, at the £30.00 kit range.
