Best/Most compatible wireless adapter for XP pro 64bit

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by siouxpernatural, Sep 15, 2009.

  1. Hello,

    Would be interested in hearing if there is any community consensus or
    general recommendations for a new wireless adapter.

    I currently have a Linksys WUSB54G and it does not work with windows xp 64.
    Due to generally lousy driver issues even with 32bit XP and linksys, I'd
    like to not buy from them again.

    I do not care if it is a PCI adapter or a USB stick or USB corded device.
    If one or another of those is better, please tell me (home computer,
    desktop). Mostly I want something that is guaranteed to work with Windows XP

    Thanks for your help!

  2. The best all-round solution to avoid any issues of drivers is to something
    like the D-Link DGL-3420. The 3420 acts as a bridge. You connect a regular
    network card to the DGL, and the DGL connects wirelessly to your wireless
    network. No drivers for a wireless adapter are required at all, giving you
    platform independence.

    If you need 802.11n, you could use something like the DAP-1522. Or a Netgear
    WNDHE111 if you're currently using 5GHz wireless (the 802.11a band).
