Best Wireless Adapters
I was just needing a wireless adapter for my computer. I am living in an apartment that has several routers around the community, and I am looking into a good adapter and hi Gain antenna to maximize my performance.
I love to play games online, so the more stable is better.

Re: Best Wireless Adapters
no I'm not stealing lol. they provide free wireless internet to everyone in the apartments. although there are some WEP encrypted signals from businesses nearby. so I would want a directional antenna like a hi gain one? and a pci card with an external and removable antenna. what is the best brand I heard Hawkings is real good especially with there new Expander I believe HBS2

The best wireless adapter I've used is actually an AIR-link brand I bought on special at FRY's for 9.99 believe it or not. Worked better than any linksys adapter I've tried, and better than my motherboard's built in wireless.

Re: Best Wireless Adapters
is there any that can be used as a router? for instance if I wanted to play ps2 online and game with my computer could I have a router that would recieve and send signals to the apartments main wireless routers?
