    I am maybe getting a new Wireless Receiver.... my campus already implement their wireless internet, seems they use the new Wireless N Router which cover a large area. If anyone using Wireless N Receiver, please give your review about the product you are using... and what the best of all the brands/model?

    plus, im using Vista SP1.. please make note if the product does not support Vista or doesnt have Vista driver...

    i am using the Encore Electronics ENLWI-N adapter and it works really well with vista sp1. i suggest downloading the drivers before you install the card. the disc that comes with the adapter doesnt have the latest vista drivers on it.

    I was using a D-Link extreme 'n' wireless adapter (http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=531), and was very pleased with it - it had great range pickup (I could pick up all 7 of our neighbor's networks), and kept perfect speed and synch with our 'n' router . . . backwards compatible with 'g' and 'b' as well.
