I am thinking about upgrading the speed of my router to N capabilities.

Currently I have my Netgear WNR2000v3 with the +150-300 range so half the battle is already won.

I have been looking at replacing my old Linksys Wireless G 2.4Ghz adapter without the N capabilities

I have WAP2 AES with Mac Filtering.

I am having a hard time looking for good stable connections

What I have found is CISCO AE100 USB N- Wireless Adapter but looking at the reviews its looks promising.

I was wondering if anyone had some ideas on other wireless adapters

I run a desktop computer with wireless but I also have a Gigabyte NIC. All around pc.

If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Even better speed wired. :whistle:

Seriously what is the speed of you Internet itself. If we are talking a 15Meg service why bother?
If we are talking something like the Cablevision Optonline Ultimate at 101meg speed then yes, change it.

I really believe that wired will be better throughput that Wireless on the same equipment.

Good Luck

Hi Roger,

That is my connection from my workstation. I used to Hughes Net Now I have a local Wireless Internet Service Provider which is above link.

My router is adjacent to this room 10 feet - 25 feet. I wanna convert my network to a wired but I cant run a RJ-45 to my room

The only thing that I can think of is bridge for a single Ethernet port

If all you are doing is sharing the Internet Wireless G should be plenty fast.

If you need to share files between computers wirelessly The Wireless N could be helpful.

Maybe someone else has a different opinion?

I wonder if you mean the Cisco linksys AE1000 and forgot a number :inlove:? Im using that wireless adapter and working flawlessly

Using newest driver (2011) on Windows XP ServicePack 3 though so may vary from W7 or Vista. Running stable 270-300 all the time even if router is downstairs beneth. On 5Ghz it's loosing lot of strenth but the speed is overall even faster than 2.4 on downloading stuff and loading games :thumbup2: If there is a version above i think 2500 or something then buy that instead
