Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My Mrs has just had Sky package installed. Shes had the broadband router, but her laptops prehistoric and needs a USB WiFi dongle.

    Basically I have no idea where to start, I've searched google but im lost in the sea of information. Can anyone advise me on the best one for her to get?

    Thanks in advance!
  2. Don't buy one by D-Link, they are notorious for incompatibility issues, even though their routers are pretty good.

    In fact, I'd be inclined to suggest you get and install an internal card - fiddly job, to be sure, but much less prone to damage.

    What is the laptop make/model?

    You can mebbe get a card that slips in and out of an expansion slot.
