wireless dongle
show user profile  STRAT
Hi guys, just a quickie for you UK types....

I've just had a new computer delivered, but it's not wire-less enabled. i need to get it connected wirelessly to my Linkysys wireless G router like my existing comp.

trouble is, all the usual Belkin and Netgear dongles on the shelves of pcworld and argos are all non xp64 compatible.

any suggestions? i need to buy/order one a.s.a.p.

Have you checked online for drivers? What makes you say they aren't OK with xp64?

Si - it wouldn't even install the software let alone not work because of lack of 64bit drivers.

i found this for £15 in my local compuiter shop anyway. works a treat -

looks good. he uses one and says it's as fast as being plugged in.
