    bestbuy is expensive. if you can make your own, go to home depot. if you want to buy go to www.newegg.com or www.tigerdirect.com

    DO NOT buy USB extensions, they are way too expensive.

    +1 on buying the cables from Newegg. I've bought tons of things from them, and they're great. The prices are WAY cheaper than any stores, especially Worst Buy (I hate that place with a passion).

    Though, I'd just go with a wireless router rather than running a 50+ foot cable through my house (well, apartment in my case). The cost of a cable plus LAN adapter would be about the same as a good wireless router (the Linksys WRT54G is great at $50), but you don't have the pesky cables running everywhere. My connection has been just as stable and fast with my wireless router (the aforementioned Linksys) as with the Nintendo LAN adapter I used to use.

    yes it will work. it connects to your computer. basically your computer will be the "wireless router" (in short terms). your computer has to be on in order for it to work.

    Ummm...where do you shop for cables? Did you even check the linked websites. You can get 50 cables for about $10.

    Actually, I went and did the work for you. It took a whole 30 seconds. Here's a 50 foot cable for $10.49 with the cost of shipping ($5.49 for the cable, $5 for shipping).

    Wow. That was a hell of a challenge.

    You also have the option of name brand Cat 6 cable for a $1 more.


    Don't go with the USB Wifi adapter. It's junk. I've heard things about it being discontinued. Plus, it's a HUGE waste of electricity as you have to have your computer on to use it. If you're going to go wireless, you might as well just get a wireless router. The Linksys WRT54G is great and only costs $50, which is only $10 more than the cheesy USB dongle thing. Plus, with a router you can use other devices wireless, such as laptops and whatnot.
