Any UK people interested in any wireless kit I have put the following items for sale on Amazon ...
2 x NetGear omnidirectional antennae for improving reception quality - they replace the built in antenna on your router or PCI card (provided the originals are removable). I also have a couple of extension cables ...http://s1.amazon.co..../Y08Y3210140Y6146697
2 x Linksys WMP54GS-UK 125 Mbps Wireless-G PCI Adapter with SpeedBooster
These are good wireless b and g cards. Speedbooster only works when all items on the network are speedbooster enabled - but they still worka at full 54Mbps and seem to get good reception - esp. with the Netgear antennae, though they are good without too.http://s1.amazon.co..../Y08Y0671430Y2919610
1 x Linksys WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander - External
Let's you expand network range when you have thick walls by relaying the signal. Only works with Linksys routers. A bit of a fiddle to set up but once it is up and running it is switch on and forget about it. Forces your whole network to use WEP encryption is the only draw back. Linksys promised to update to WPA but haven't done anything so far! I got it working with a WAG54G ADSL Gateway/Router (below) without too many problems (despite Linksys saying it doesn't support that router!).http://s1.amazon.co..../Y09Y1790131Y5673651
1 x Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Gateway WAG54G - Wireless router + 4-port switch
Works fine (now that I have discovered that you have to disable filtering on the router IP in AdMuncher!). Doesn't drop connections (or at least hasn't for me). Requires manual setup - so you need ISP settings (I can tell you the BT Broadband settings).
Anyone interested in any of these items use PM to contact me and make me an offer (can be a bit less than Amazon price because they take a pound of flesh for letting you post the items!).
