|Sorry if I misunderstood. While I am able to read, I am bad with computer terminology. Getting through an article not written in layman's language would be harder than reading through a legal philosophy book for me. Take people who are bad at math, they do not have trouble reading the problems and solutions, yet they still cannot understand. So if you are understanding, then yes I do need help similar to how a lost math student would need help. And I'm very sure that my topic is only an extension to a 2012 January thread so I assumed it was an appropriate topic. Sorry if it wasn't allowed.|
Now after reading your post, I obviously had misinterpreted what you said and I'm sure I'm still confused. What I was asking for clarification for was whether there was a difference between a wireless adapter in the form of a USB stick vs those usb adapters that are as big as routers if they both say, for example 300mbps wireless-n adapter, etc. EDIT: or more precisely if neither product was a defect, would a 2 star average rated product on newegg work the same as a 5 star.
The reason I interpreted it that way was because the old thread was asking which wireless adapter is most reliable and you replied there is no difference. So after reading that I thought good, "That means I don't have to worry about the bad reviews and the prices since all the bad reviews must 1) either have outdated drivers or 2) wifi would not work for them no matter what other brand they purchased" since you replied that no one brand works differently than the other.
If I have interpreted all wrong, just assume that to me this is hard math. And my question is actually the same as the old thread just an extension, so again I assumed that this was an appropriate question to make a thread on based on precedence.
EDIT: I didn't say what you said contradict anything you knew of. I said that it contradicted things I read. Forum links which I have forgotten cannot be provided, but the logic applies to reviews in sites like amazon, newegg, ncix, etc. What you said contradicted what they said because they say that this certain product or brand works better/worse than another, if i understood you correctly that is.
And as far as contradiction goes, different sites contradict different sites, with one saying usb is better and another saying pci is better, and then anther saying pci-e is best. I imagine the only way for a newbie to learn is to buy a book on networking... since everyone says something different on the internet.
