    Wireless network question

    Hey everyone. I'll be setting up a wireless network at my house pretty soon, and I've got a question about it. Will different brands of equitment "cooperate" with each other, or should I get all the same brand. For instance, would a linksys router, netgear PCI card and a D-Link USB adaptor work together? The reason I ask is that although I'd like to go all Linksys, there are some other brands of some equiptment that are about half the price, and its not like its a big network here, so I dont think I need the extra stability. Thanks!

    Check with the manufactuer'r for compatibility, my reccomendation is to use all the same brand. Preferably, imo, linksys.
