    Wifi adapter

    I have a question for computer savvy guys, I need a usb type wi fi adapter for my PP 1100 computer that will connect to my wifi home system, I had one and broke it, and I cant find where I bought that one. I have no idea which one to buy?

    Its not a real big deal but I would like to get PP updates over the net etc.

    Any help appreciated!!

    I didn't think there was much difference in usb or most computer devices, Plug and pray is normal.
    I have to use a hardwire network, my home is like a faraday cage and wifi only goes out the windows. Still took Tormachs help to set the controller up correctly to network . Some un published settings in files that had to be edited. Now after only a week of using it I wonder why I waited 2 years to put a switch in shop and patch in

    Re: Wifi adapter

    I had a little usb adapter plugged into the outside usb port, moved the 20 gallon chip can under the machine and snapped it off, dumb mistake on my part!!
    I bought one from Tormach originally and had heard that there are some available on ebay that work as well, just wondering if some one had the info etc.

    Like my Dad used to say, If I wasnt so dang dumb I would be pretty smart!!!!

    The one I like is EDIMAX and is known to work well with Linux.
    You can pick one up at Amazon for $14 with free shipping.
    If you look around you might find it somewhere else cheaper, free shipping, no tax and/or used ...

    If at all possible it's much better to run some Cat 5e cable from you controller to your switch.

    I didn't even think of that! Forgot about old 802.11 routers and hardware still being around.
    Figured rdsi had some quick correct info on the subject.
