Anyone use a wireless adapter?
Are the wireless adapters Reliable for a gaming connection? I put my computer in another room and I didn't realize it didn't have a wireless adapter.

I also have an old linksys wireless router, if that can be used to catch my wireless network and deliver the signal through an Ethernet cable.

I opt for an Ethernet connection whenever possible, but wireless can get the job done well enough. Just expect to have some more lag spikes and/or disconnects than you may be used to.

Then again, my Cisco router is pretty horrid when it comes to this, and I need to reset the thing daily or more to keep my wireless devices working. You may have a better experience depending on the products you use.

I'd go with this one if I were you. New Egg reviews are probably more telling than Amazon for computer tech, and this thing reads very well. Plus it's cheap.

I use a wireless connection on my PC, although I have to use a special high-gain antenna to get a decent enough signal to play.

I use a Linksys E3000. It has a max of 54Mbps. Since my internet caps out at 10Mbps, it is still overkill.

STO doesn't really require that much bandwidth. What gets you is ping speed.

My ISP provides me with a Thompson router and that combined with my N network card offer no issues at all.
