Adapters Debunked

- December 8, 2009 - 0 Comments



For many, the concept of using an adapter on a laptop to connect to a wireless network seems confusing. The advantages, however, are clear: the following adapters, when used with a Wireless-N router, will allow you to network at a much faster pace with expanded range, so that you may enjoy your Wireless-N network to the fullest.

Fitting neatly into your PC’s express card slot, a Dual-Band Wireless-N Express card gives you the freedom to network on both the 2.4 and the 5.0 GHZ bands, making it ideal for fast internet access and music/video streaming from other devices in the home. Best of all, it is small enough to travel with your laptop, so you don’t compromise range or speed when you hit the road.

And we’re not done there. Play online games with the same vigor as you compute with a Dual-Band Wireless-N Gaming adapter. Plugging right into your Ethernet-enabled gaming console, it gives you the freedom to get your game on without wires.

If you’re USB-port inclined, look into getting a Dual Band Wireless-N USB adapter, complete with WPA2 encryption for the ultimate online security. After determining which adapter best suits your needs, set-up your Wireless-N network with a Linksys by Cisco Wireless-N router and start streaming. You’ll never want to give it up.
