Why? Less dropouts, less lag, more reliable.
And the time has passed where I used to skip USB sticks. Why not something like I use? Example at link.
It's about 10 bucks and on Windows 7 I don't have to find the drivers. And even if it notes 54 megabit, the sticks I've received are N compatible.
I am a tad confused. I have a generic desktop PC running an ASUS H61-MX-USB3 board. To date I have run this wired to my router (a D-LINK DSL-2680) but as I now have a multitude of other (potentially) wireless devices, such as games players etc I wanted to re-rig to run wireless. I have two old redundant (generic) desktops both with ASUS boards and PCI cards installed. I took one of the cards out (a Belkin G) to use but the motherboard ports are different? No amount of google etc has indicated when they or if they changed. I realise having read elsewhere on CNET that I could use a USB adapter (but which one?) but the consensus seems to favour a card. I am a simple soul and your advice would be appreciated; greatly!
