    Untested code is broken code, or so I've been informed.

    Make sure it's one that's supported with people actually using it, not one that's just marked supported but never tested.

    All of them will work with linksys, as for linux, no idea. Your best bet is to check which chipsets are supported by linux and get a card (probably pci) with that chip.

    Got a Linksys router (on sale)
    also picked up 2 usb adapters (for the wireless )

    But they don't work with Linux

    Ya know of a usb or pci adapter that is good and works with linksys router and linux?

    (I'll update this if i find one that works)

    When you already have a router, all you need is a wireless access point which is basically a box that makes your wire wireless and nothing else. What Baz said.

    Now the thing is, an accesspoint from Linksys costs the same as a wireless router from Linksys. Additionally, Linksys is a much better brand than D-Link, the router part will probably be newer and more powerful.

    Unless there is a big price difference, get the wireless Linksys router, toss the D-Link in the bin.

    AP's nowadays are only needed for special purposes like bridging or repeating. When i need to install just an accesspoint somewhere, i often end up getting a wireless router and leaving the WAN port unconnected, or use it as a true IP router.

    ...depending on whether or not you already have a router on your (assumedly) broadband connection.

    well would you be replacing the D-Link rounter with the Linksys router? An access point is all you really need

    Hi!

    I'm trying to decided about a Linksys Wireless A+G access point (that will plug into current D-Link router) or a Linksys Wireless A+G router.

    Anyone have any experience with wireless networking?

    Which would you buy? or recommend?
