hi, i have a few questions about wht i should do with my new pc 4 its internet connection. i already have a wireless b router (it sucks n im getting a new one sumtime) and i deffinately dont get 11 mbps although theyre like a room away frm eachother. but im not sure if the signal will reach downstairs where my new pc's going. will i have a better experience with this pc if i just wire it, or should i buy a range extendor which 2 me seems a little pricey.
Just wire it. You can get a the full 11mbps. Wireless will work but it will go as slow as hell.
hey andy slusher, i think that you should wire it with your new 400$ CPU with a athalon 2800+ then overclock it to 3000+....
Wire it... Wireless is new, and unfinished.
I've heard Wireless is about to undergo a radical overhaul, and the old technology will be almost a joke by comparison, although not obsolete.
I had a wireless network that I used to connect a computer across the house to a network. I wan't happy with performance, and I couldn't get a signal sometimes... so I spent about $100 buying range extenders, new cards, and antenna's for my PC and in the end I ended up just wiring the damn thing.
I have never had luck with wireless, ever. Even the simplest of networks seem to give me trouble. Id go wired in all the way unless you absolutely can't

Would that be a reference to the 802.11n protocol? Some folks are touting Bluetooth as a viable wireless alternative; I'm not so sure that that will pan out as such. My personal recommendation is to go wired. No lost links, better security, and faster transfer speeds overall.
