I would like to network the following on wi-fi:

2 desktops & 2 laptops one has intergrated 803.11g but I don't know which manufacturer to go for. Has anyone any suggestions and reasons for using them. Thanks in advance, Mark

I'm using a Belkin 802.11b USB adapter and it gives me plenty of range (I can stream mpeg files from three floors up without breakup). Documentation is good and they provide free support. Had a quick reply from them myself but a customer of mine found that his query wasn't answered satisfactorily.

Avoid Bluetake - they've given me nothing but trouble, and a range of about 5m...

Belkin seems OK, from what I've heard...

Avoid Actiontec and avoid Dabs (see my post in Consumerwatch) First the power supply failed, then the modem itself. Still waiting for it to be returned 7 weeks later. Range was a bit disappointing. I agree that Belkin products seem very robust.
