my friend alley oop...
....you met him....asked me...and i dunno!


As some know I am relying on my roommates computer lately. I have yet to connect my own system.

My rooomie has a Compaq , it's not bad but her's is like a VWbug next to my Hummer. It takes a very long time to load a link or click, and it's very frustrating for this adhd unmedicated moron to deal with.

I was going to add another Qwest Dsl line to the house but the cost is high and I just bought some new furniture which limits my "free" cash flow.. She has Comcast high speed cable and they recommended I buy a wirless router and wirelss card for my computer and set it up that way.

Thing is I dont' know much about wireless routers or cards and was hoping the techies here might be able to give a few pointers to save me some inital money and I buy a good but not crazy expensive set up.

I know the inital cost will be high but then I can avoid a monthly charge.

Suggestions ? ...

See it's taken me almost 15 minutes just to get this thread typed because it keeps locking up after a couple of words.


I need fast....

Well.. I've never set up wireless before.. but has your friends computer had temp files and cookies and such cleaned lately? Or done defrag? Just a thought. I might explain the lockups... or at least part of it.

I hope someone with computer savvy comes along.. lol

My iBook laptop has an airport (wireless) card installed; my trusty iMac does not. An inexpensive router networks both computers so my laptop is fully wireless. I do wireless printing on a regular printer.
