Just recently got a new router (802.11n) to replace an old one (802.11g). OS is Windows XP. Mostly OK, but drops connection rather too often ("Problem with Wireless USB Adapter"). Also, oddly, download speeds are now sometimes faster than upload. Anyway, it must be time to replace the old wireless adapter (-g), with a new -n one. Correct? Suggestions? And with prices from around £10 to £40, are the expensive ones really worth the extra? I doubt it.
Oops! Thanks for correction, Onthelimit, that's what I meant to say! In fact, Upload speed is sometimes three times faster than Download.
961: Pop-up message says "Wireless USB Adapter Client Card Configuration Utility has encountered a problem", so I imagine it's between router and desktop. Router (new) is Edimax. Your "click here" looks good, so I'll probably follow it.
Fruit Bat: I think there's some incompatibility in the 'old' adapter anyway (pop-up message seems to suggest so), and I intend to get one that works with -n. Once I've done that, I'll follow through your suggestion. It looks worth checking.
Thanks to one and all. 'Bye.
