I currently only have one main modem for my cable internet pus a linksys WRT54G router w/ WIFI capabilities. I was wondering if its possible if I could get a PCI wireless card for my PC and still get good enough speed to game with reeally low pings.

thanks,.

I've read a few articles that the conversion to WiFi then back to ethernet will introduce an extra 8 to 14 ms to your pings.

I haven't tested it myself yet, but it sounds like an interesting thing to try. But you'll always be better off with vanilla wired ethernet with gaming.

Packet Loss is another concern. lagged in CS a few times on wireless.

i have wireless G pulsing through the house and it works fine for my internet gaming. (wolefenstein :lol: , and battlefield and UT and Tribes 2) it works fine. where my computer is now i have a choice of wi-fi and ethernet (100MBs) and there's no noticable difference.
