Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000

\015 Trying to get connected for new BT Home Hub on second computer (ie, needs to be wireless) and searching for compatible adapter for this old tower??\015

Answers :

Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.

It takes about 2 hours of restarting before it actually turns green and picks up the signal.
