      What is The Linksys Wireless Adapter?
      The linksys Wireless adapter is a Usb Device which plugs into a usb port on your computer, and it enables you to connect to long distance wireless base connections.

      I bought the Linksys wireless adapter after a constant number of tries to connect to the internet at high speeds when 2 floors up from the wireless O2 box. Then even though Windows XP should have Wi-fi enabled - apparently it is only accesible via USB Network Adaptor.
      So I went down to my local PC world and the man recommended to me this USB Network Range Booster, and after 7 months of using the Linksys Wireless adapter ,I have not yet once found out a problem.

      The installation process is fairly simple, plug in the USB and away you go. Also the Usb that comes with the Linksys adapter works with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1. Also the size of it is about 7 cm long and rougly 8 cm wide
      So it is portable if you may ever need to take it elsewhere.

      Also With a lot of modern devices there are 5-10 wires with the product and it complicates certain problems such as portability and the wires may be quite complicated with regards to the installation process.
      This is not a problem with the Linksys Wireless Adapter as the adapter has one wire, one side connects to the computer, the other to the computer.

      It does have one or two flaws to it though, firstly the manufacturer's Seal is on the Side, and it clearly states that ' if this seal is removed or broken, the product warranty will not be valid '. So therefore If you have got children or if you intend to place it at a low height where supossedly children can reach, then I would not recommend this.

      However If you did have the same problem as me then this is a delightful bit of kit, It is very Reliable and does the job day in day out.
      Also it stops the trouble of having to go to your local library or wi-fi spot just to access internet facillities.

      Thanks for reading

    The Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with RangeBooster is the simple way to add or upgrade wireless connectivity in your desktop or notebook computer. RangeBooster technology is a compatible add-on to standard Wireless-G which increases your wireless network's range up to two times, and its throughput by up to 35%. Unlike ordinary wireless technologies that are confused by signal reflections, RangeBooster uses two smart receivers at each end to detect and decode reflected signals at distances where standard technologies give up. You'll find that "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area are reduced, too.

    Unlike other range-enhancing technologies, RangeBooster is fully 802.11 compliant, and a "good neighbor" to other wireless devices and technologies, using a single 2.4GHz channel as specified by the official wireless standard. And with RangeBooster you'll see a range improvement even when running a mixed network of RangeBooster and regular Wireless-G and Wireless-B devices.

    To install, simply plug the Adapter into any available USB port. (It's compatible with both USB 1.1 and 2.0 ports, but 2.0 will yield the fastest speeds.) It gets its power through the USB connection, so no power cord is necessary. The included Setup Wizard walks you through configuring the Adapter to your wireless network settings, step by step. Wireless communications can be protected by WPA 128-bit encryption, so your data stays secure.

    The high-gain antenna lets you put your computer almost anywhere in the building, without the cost and hassle of running cables. Now you don't have to drill holes in your walls and climb through the attic or cellar to get connected to the network. Once you're connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet, use instant messaging to chat with friends, play on-line games, and share files and other resources such as printers and hard disk storage space with other computers on the network.

    So don't hassle with running cables through your house - get connected to Wireless-B, Wireless-G, and RangeBooster wireless networks the easy way with the Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with RangeBooster.
