Wireless card?

hey guys,

I have broadband, and I have a Wireless router. My PC is in my bedroom. So I need to make it wireless. I have asked around and some1 told me its best to get the bluetooth wireless dongle, rather than the standard wireless card.

I dont know what to get. Can somebody please recomend me what to get and what is best?

    The one i am using at them moment is a TRENDnet - 802.11b Wireless LAN USB Adapter. I think i got my from Wilkinsons of all places ages ago but Argos are selling some excellent ones, I think they are Cable & Wireless. Have a look through the Argos Catalogue.

    Don't get a bluetooth dongle, that is a differnet technology....you need either a PCI Wi-Fi card or an external USB wireless dongle....I got a D-Link one that cost £20.
