Unfortunately I don't have any more available LAN sockets on my BT hub. Thankfully it is a wireless hub so I am thinking about getting some kind of a wireless adapter for one of the computers I use on my amateur radio. I'm just wondering what to get, so if someone has one that they would recommend, I would rate much appreciate some advice. If you check the link below, this is where I will probably get it from, so these are a few that are available for me.

I have a Belkin one that i use on occasion, its got me out of quite a few pinches while updating operating systems and my lan/wifi driver get deleted but honestly i cant imagine using one all the time its kinda buggy and works when it wants too

So i guess what im saying is stay away from Belkin :lol:

anything that has the name linksys on it is decent quality. i wouldn't go for the old plug into motherboard type anymore but use a simple usb wifi stick like the ones listed here: www.linksys.com/en-eu/products/adapters
look at the specs of your hub (probably wireless G, maybe even N) and buy one that has the same specs.
