Need to put a wireless adapter in my PC. Was wondering if anyone has any experience with the USB adapters and if they work well or do I need something more, like a full-fledged PCI slot adapter? Thanks.
Yes. My router is upstairs and my PS3 and computer are downstairs.
These are about on par with the prices of a PCI port card, so this seems like a pretty good solution. So I put one of these in the room with the router and the other downstairs in the room with the other devices?
Yup, best solution Sherls. I have some feeding the PC upstairs and they work very well. Not quite as fast as a proper wired connection but better and more stable than wireless. If you can though try not to plug them in to a plug extension socket and go directly into the wall socket if you can as sometimes they can be abit temperamental.
So has anybody ever had any problems with this? I set it up today and its very plug and play... except its not working. They're both plugged into a wall outlet, all the lights are on, my adapter and computer both have the lights on with the connection. There really isn't any troubleshooting for this because its supposed to be easy. The only error I'm getting is after I installed the utility disk its telling me there's still no driver on the computer? Makes no sense. Help.
So I went an entire year and a half without any issues. Then today my provides send me a new router so I have to reset everything and here I am again with the same mystery problem as before and trying everything and this time, nothing seems to be working. The stupid thing is that all the lights are on properly on each of the adapters. I don't even know where to begin at this point.
Once again after simply futzing with it and trying to figure out something, switching what room each is in, it starts working. The adapters couldn't find each other even in the same room for a bit, so I assume this is just some sort of a hardware problem. I guess its back to online again!
