No. The manufacturer of your blu-ray player also manufactures compatible adapters. Alternatively, you can buy a universal wifi adapter which doesn't require drivers and should therefore (in theory) be compatible with any wifi capable device. A universal device is usually cheaper, (about $50 compared to about $80 for a major manufacturer's adapter) but due to the endless possible combinations of hardware its tough to get good tech support if you have problems and technically it could void the warranty of the blu-ray player.

As long as your version of Win XP is updated to Service Pack 3 or higher (automatic updates from Microsoft usually takes care of this), and has a USB 2.0 port it should work fine.

Question

Using N adaptor doesn't get me an N signal?

My laoptop is windows 7, but G compatable. I got the adaptor so I could be N compatable with my new N router. But the signal is still G? is there some setting my laptop I need to do so it uses the N signal instead of the G (since the router is obviously g and N compatable). I want N 'cause it is faster than G. Thanks

As long as your router is an N router, you would need to disable your internal G adapter card and tell your computer to use the N150 adapter instead.

I had an older router (linksys) when the 802.11n standard was new and by default it would connect at 802.11g. I had to log into the router and change the default connection telling it to use 802.11n if available.

You most likely need to disable the native adapter in your laptop. With the N adaptor unplugged to avoid confusion later, Click Start, right-click Computer, click Properties>Device Manager. You may need to approve a safety popup using admin access here. Once beyond that, open Network Adapters and disable any items listed there. Then reboot and plug in the N adapter and Windows should find it and begin using it. Good luck. :)

You would first need to obtain an internet service provider and then a wireless router to supply internet to your laptop.

Yes this should work on your desktop computer. However in my experience because of the lower power the range is more limited than a pci wireless card installed in the computer (especially if it has an external antenna)..

Yes it will, but fair warning, the device is a bit bulky in size, and you might not be able to fit other usb devices (mouse, keyboard) depending on your computer, unless you get a usb extension cord or plug into the front of your pc

The wireless standard is 802.11a/b/g/n and well USB is USB. So it doesn't matter what is on the other end of the wireless signal as long as it complies with the same standard (ie 802.11b is not compatible with 802.11n).

Question

2 answers The wireless card is going out on my laptop. Is this a good option instead of a new laptop?

I currently have a Toshiba laptop and I don't want to have to replace it. I am thinking that the network card on my laptop is now going out but I still need the laptop for school on top of that I need the internet to do homework for classes, so I am kind of in a bind to get my laptop back connected to the net.
