wireless usb card
Posted on 2012-04-05
My pc is a Dell Vostro 220 and the OS is win 7 Prof 64 bit (I upgraded it). Does anyone know if this pc has a wireless built into the pc. If NO, then I intend to purchase a wireless usb card to connect to the internet. This is because, strange as it sounds, but my direct connection by ethernet to my Verizon FIOS router, the speed for Download is 3.624 and the speed for Upload is 20.41 Mbps.
My HP laptop which I connected wirelessly gives me a download speed of 29.38 and the upload of 24.61.
Why the above results, I have no clue.
Thus, I am planning to buy a wirless usb card to see if my speed improves because my connection to the internet takes a long time to load the pages or play any video from youtube.com.
My ISP is verizon FIOS
If my above plan to get a wireless usb card is a good try and fix, hope the Gurus could please advise, based on my pc model and OS configuration what speed I should go and also the Brand name. As I am on a budget so please give me some choices. Thank u.
