Title: Purchase New Wireless USB for Vector - Solved?
Post by: christh on March 08, 2010, 03:14:01 am
Hi

I've finally given up on trying to get the notoriously evil Netgear 111v2 (rtl8187 chipset) usb to work and plan to buy a new wireless USB to work with Vector.

Would anybody have an suggestions on a good, out of the box, brand, model, chipset that I should lookout for.

I suppose I should go to the shops,write down what the've got, come back and check etc but I'd guess that there are certain brands readily available that tend to work more often than not?

I understand that not all cases are the same and a suggestion still may not work for me but I thought firsthand experience would be better than a random selection...

Thanks

Chris

Thanks for in advance for your help.
