What is the Fastest wireless Adapter. Hi im currently using a D-link DWL-G122 wireless adapter to get broadband on my upstairs computer.
It runs at up to 54Mbps, there are ones that run faster than this. would there be any point in getting a faster one??

I be a bit weary of speedtest.net over wireless - seems to be stuck on the 2M down though i know my wired connection close to 4 time that and network traffic over wireless is way faster than that. Only reason to go to a faster wireless protocol is purely for networking purposes - if you are transfering lots of files over wireless than tis usefull, otherwise no point.

you would only notice a difference if you transferred a lot of files around between pc's. But if your using the net i wouldn't bother.

Tryed it with my other computer Got similar results. I was Just wondering if having a faster Adapter would make any difference to online games such as Call of Duty 4 amd 5 and brothers in arms

nope you probably more inetersted in ping times more than anything else (asuuming the game you are playing isn't maxing out your download-upload speeds - very likely)this is unaffected by the type of network you are using. Now i did hear something about interleave at the adsl exchange itself but that's unknown teritory to me.
