Setting up a Wireless Network.

  Daibus 11:35 23 Nov 2005

At the moment I am connected to ADSL via a D-Link Router, which has been fine but am thinking of also buying a Notebook and would like to set up a Wireless Network to be used in conjunction with my Router.

Is it necessary, as far as performance goes to use a "Wireless Access Point" by the same manufacturer as the Router? I have been looking at Belkin and Linksys which seem to be the most common brands around for this type of equipment.

You can mix and match equipment manufacturers to your hearts content.

Thank you for your reply - any preference between Linksys and Belkin?

Isn`t the D-Link router wireless? I`ve used Belkin USB Wireless adapters with D-Link and no problems. If the existing D-Link isn`t wireless you will probably find that it`s cheaper just to replace it with this click here Free Adapter with the bundle.

Many thanks for your reply and yes my router isn't wireless.

Looked up that link for the D-Link bundle and it does look a good option for me but I'm in Spain, and that particular company unfortunately does not ship outside of the UK or Ireland.
