    Wireless question(total noob)


    Hey everyone,

    I have my wired Dell Inspiron 570 PC that I use everyday in one room, and I have an old Dell Dimension 3000 in another room that I would like to be able to use by way of wireless usb adapter.
    I have a Linksys E1200 router connected to the 570, and would like to know....

    Will the dimension 3000 even be compatible with my router, and if it is which wireless adapter would be compatible with the router and the 3000? I'm willing to spend like $25

    Thanks.

    Your router signal will be available to any wireless capable computer. Get a D-Link DWA-131 Nano for your Dell Dimension 3000. It's small (nano), elegant, fast and cheap.
