Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 pro 64bit, 4gb
Ok I have an all in one modem provided by my isp. I want to buy a wireless usb. Plus do I need a seperate wireless card if I buy a wireless usb adapter? Does it matter g/b/n? I'm a bit confised.
I have a DELL Inspiron 560 dual core intel 6 usb ports 1 ethernet. i video card nVidia. Windows 7 pro 64bit. I'm sure none of theat info is required. No wireless card inside.

You don't need both a wireless card and a wireless USB connector.

Does it matter g/b/n? I'm a bit confised.

What is your router? It will most likely be B/G. If it's also N capable, I would get an N adapter. To be honest though, it shouldn't matter as any adapter you buy should be backwards compatible with previous versions. So, if you get an N, it should also do B/G but before you buy, verify this.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

I'm not sure on the b/g//n part nothing in the documenst tell me for the all in one modem. I'll have to contact the company about it.
Anyways thank you for the response. It helps me out a lot.
