So, you say you just bought a second or even a third computer for your household fand you're wondering how you're going to connect it to the Internet? Well, for one thing you'll need a router and probably a wireless adapter such as the Belkin F5D8053 N Wireless adapter, unless you plan on directly wiring it to a port on your router. Using a wireless adapter however would be the much easier and quicker way to setup access to your home network/broadband Internet connection. Benchmark Reviews has just reviewed the Belkin F5D8053 N Wireless adapter for you. Now let's see if it's something worth buying or not.
I particularly like using wireless USB adapters just because of their ease of use and speed of setup. They also tend to pick up wireless network signals better than their internal PCI card counterparts. The N Wireless USB Adapter connects your desktop or notebook computer to a wireless network. Providing greater range and faster speeds, N offers an excellent solution for sending large files such as video, music, photos, and documents among the networked computers in your home.
Based on the 802.11n draft, N Wireless enables multiple receivers and transmitters to send and receive data using Intelligent MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) spatial multiplexing techniques which greatly increases speed, coverage, and the reliability of the wireless network.
