What type of network adapter should I purchase?

A USB WiFi adapter is an easy way to enhance your device to get the fastest speeds available. UIT recommends the NetGear A6210 which is available on campus at the CougarByte and online stores or electronics retailers near you.

Test a USB adapter before you purchase! Go to the Information Technology Support Center to try a WiFi adapter and see how much of an improvement it is over your current WiFi connection.
