How do I choose the right network adapter?

When choosing wireless network adapters for Windows-based wireless clients, use the following best practices:

  • Choose wireless network adapters whose drivers are designed for Windows 7, Vista or Windows XP and support WPA2, WPA, or both as needed.
  • If you are using dynamic WEP during your transition to WPA or WPA2, choose wireless network adapters that support Windows 7, Vista or Windows XP, WEP encryption with 128-bit keys, and IEEE 802.1X authentication.
  • For easier deployment, use wireless network adapters that have Plug and Play drivers already included with Windows 7, Vista or Windows XP or are available through Windows Update.
  • Avoid installing wireless configuration tools that are provided with the wireless network adapter and use Windows Wireless Auto Configuration.
