    Hi,

    Don't know much about this subject.

    I have signed up to Sky's base package of 2MB, and I have received the Sagem router.

    My desktop isn't wireless enabled yet, so i need to go and buy an adapter. How do i know which one to get, as the prices seemed to vary a lot depending on whether it is G, G+ or N?

    Any advice?

    If your PC is going to sit next to or be in the same room as the router from SKY then use a cable as this will ALWAYS be a better connection than wireless.

    Hi Andy,

    There is a possibility I may keep the desktop next to the router.

    Would you have any advice on the wireless adapters though in order to use a wireless printer. As the TV and possibly the desktop will be OK in my Dining Room, a printer definitely won't be.

    I've identified a very nice Canon Pixma M600R.

    Would the G, G+ etc. speed matter for that?

    No your PC will NOT require a Wireless adapter to work.
    The PC talks to the Router and the Router talks to the printer.
    The router allocates network addresses for all connections, what your PC does is send the printable document via the router to the printer and it does not matter if the printer is connected via wired or wireless lan.

    Magic eh!
