Before I get any deeper into this, I thought I'd ask here first. I've already spent a good four hours researching this problem on the web. And while the guys at Best Buy were very helpful today, I'm not sure if they understood what I need to do.
Our household has a total of three laptops that are used. Mine is a Gateway Fx running Vista Premium with the a/b/g/n wireless adapter. My grandmother has a Presario V6200 running Vista Basic with the b/g wireless adapter. My daughter's laptop is a Toshiba Satelitte A105 running Windows XP sp1, with the b/g wireless adapter as well.
Our house is a fairly decent size two story, with my daughter and grandmother's rooms upstairs, and mine is downstairs. We have Sprint Broadband, using a wireless aircard 595U. Needless to say, we are running into problems sharing the one aircard now that it's summer and everyone is home.
The guys at Best Buy, recommended the Netgear Rangemax Wireless Router WPN824 as it delivers the best range and works with the g adapter. Were they correct in this? And if so, how do I set it up when there is no usb slot in the router and that's what the aircard uses. These may be dumb questions, but for the life of me, I can't figure out this whole wireless router thing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. And would definitely help with whole 'it's my turn to use it' arguments we are having.
