    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?
