    hi all, my internet on my laptop is awful, the connection breaks something like once every 2/3 minutes and i have to click repair. i hate to sound like a massive airhead but if i buy a new wireless adapter (such as this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wireless-Int...F8&s=computers ) will it work with any router? i have a touchspeed router and currently use a netgear wireless card. what should i look for when buying a new wireless adapter and whats a reasonable price? thanks alot for any advice/reccomendations

    It's probably a software problem, not a hardware problem.
    Wireless adapters have been flawless since 2000.
    Find the newest drivers for your current adapter.
    Fix your windows OS.

    My 2 cents.

    Make sure that it is compatible with the router, in terms of wireless standard. If the router can support n standard, but an n adapter.
