I have a BT Home Hub 2.0 which I use to connect my PS3 and Xbox 360 and they both work fine.
As BT installed it downstairs I have to use a 'Wired' connection to the downstairs home hub to connection to my PC which is upstairs which is a pain.
I would like to know if anyone knows the Best Wireless PCI Card or USB Wireless Adapter which works best with the BT Home Hub 2.0 or if BT does one and if it can brought from btshop.
PS I must say it was so easy setting up the home hub and the phone following the quick guide wish everything was that easy...

I found that the PCI card worked ok but it depends where you place your base unit. If it is on the ground under your desk then that will hamper the PCI card getting the signal from the hub. I use netgear USB WPN111 and WN121T and find that by using the USB extension you can bring the adapter to desktop level and improve reception. My personal preference is WN121T which seems to get the best signal but that's my choice. Both can be obtained from a popular auction site

I used a Belkin N1 card in my laptop (before I upgraded the laptop). I bought this off eBay for about £6. If you want USB I have heard good reports on Edimax which you can get from Amazon.

I agree with imjolly. I use one available from ebuyer.
Using it on a cable allows you to improve reception. What I will say is that you may not get full speed. I only get 65mbps as opposed to the 150 advertised, but this is more than ample.

Seems like this network card isn't doing too good , the signal is awful and keeps dropping out any advice?

have you tried changing the wireless channel in your router to see if that helps

haven't tried that yet , is that in the BT Home Hub Admin settings like 192.168 sort of thing.

yes thats it 192.168.1.254.
try downloading inssider and then run it. This will show the broadcasting networks round about you and their channels including your own. Then enter your router and change your wireless channel to a free or less congested channel.
