Im thinking about getting a wireless connection for my desktop pc and have a few questions.

My current speed via a wire ranges from 6 to 7Mbps so was wondering if I would get the same speeds via a wireless connection?

My PC is wireless enabled so in addition to the router what esle do I need to buy in order to get going?

Thanks :)

and are dependent on many factors - distance from the router, and intervening obstacles being the main things. In practice there'll be little if any noticeable degradation in speed, so you shouldn't let that be a worry - unless you're a fanatic online gamer.

If your computer already has a wireless networking adapter you'll simply need to buy a wireless router/modem combination - no other hardware is necessary.
