Default Stupid hardware question

December 26th, 2006, 17:07
Ah, the times they are a-changin. Technology has finally left me spitting dust and muttering about getting old.

Got my DSL set up at the new house. They sent me a wireless router, and I have a few questions.
1) Is there a big performance hit going to wireless versus using the same equipment with copper?
2) If I were to take advantage of the wireless (Mrs dte would appreciate that since at the moment I have to run wires across the living room and can't close up the PC armoire), is there anything special I need to do hardware-wise, or will "any" wireless board do the trick as long as it will plug into my mobo?

Thanks in advance. I'll go sit in my rocker for a while and gripe about "kids these days".

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
