    Wanted WTD - Wireless Router for Virgin

    All,

    Buying my mum an EEEPC for Xmas. Now all I need is a wireless router.

    The cheaper the better really, I would ideally like a Netgear but any that works will be a bonus. I would really like to only pay £15 delivered if at all possible.....

    Cheers,

    Goldberg

    mate, do a check first as most reviews i've read say wireless doesn't work properly with the EEpc running linux,I just bought (after a lot of looking) a hp 2133 with Linux, which I'm going to put XP onto instead, this is the way to go and only £190 from ebuyer.

    To be honest I'll probably be sticking XP on it for her as she is used to that.

    When I had my EEEPC (before I returned it for a Wind), I had wireless issues, however a quick driver update and it was fine.

    I had a Linksys router when I had my eepc with no problems, it worked with my Dlink dir 655 also, you should have no problems.

    This is much appreciated sir! If I ever meet you the Beer is on me!
    I have to insist that you let me cover postage mate? Are you after any items that I might be able to assist with?
