    Linksys WUSB54G, stay away from Belkin products. I had nothing but trouble from them.

    Why not? I play BF2142, Armed Assult, Supreme commander, and Test Drive Unlimited on the net via wireless all the time with no problems

    good for you, i wouldnt rely on radio waves which go though the air and get interrupted by a sneeze. best wireless is when the source and destionation antenna touches eachother.
    if you still want wireless get the router as close to the pc as possible

    Ive never had a problem with online game play and a wireless connection. Sure it may be slightly slower but is still a reliable source if you don't want to run a cable round your house.

    On a 54mbps wireless card even if you get as low as half of even 20mbps your connection will only run at a max 520kbps so not too much of a slow down
