My sister-in-law wants to setup a wireless connection from an older desktop PC running Windows XP Home to her D-Link N router, model# DIR-615, P/N: BIR615ANA....C1. She was told at an Office Max store that she could ONLY use a D-Link N adapter. Is this correct? And, is there a difference in the adapters labeled for notebooks vs desktops? Aren't they interchangeable? Thanks!

I went ahead and got a NetGear wireless G adapter for my sister-in-law and install it and it works fine. It is compatible with notebooks also.
