Hound Advice: The Best Wireless Ethernet Adapter Setup for Gaming (…but on a budget)

I have a feeling we’ve all been there. We have a point where we think we just need to get a decent adapter and make due with a wireless connection. That lasts about 2 weeks, we realize we wasted money AGAIN, and we commit to running that Ethernet cable down the hall. But what if I told you that you actually could game on wireless? I don’t have any pills to offer, but I can give you an instructional video on how to get the best wireless signal that not only has pings nearly as good as wired, but also keeps a stable connection. As it turns out, the adapter is probably the weakest point. Check out the full video below in order to understand the concepts, or visit the description section on Youtube so you can get to the part you want. As always, head to the forums to start discussions and get answers to your pressing tech questions!



Rapoo 7100P Wireless Mouse review

Computer mice are such odd peripherals. So many variations to suit different personal preferences, resulting in a difficult time trying to guess which one is best for you. Having seen a decent number of mice in my days, suffice it to say I’ve seen both good and bad, and plenty in-between. Particular models become popular amongst users, making a name for themselves, and often taking on the established industry. One of the up-and-coming companies which seems to have a good understanding of what makes a good mouse, is Rapoo. Today we have a chance to review the Rapoo 7100P Wireless Mouse with adjustable DPI. Despite the difference in DPI, the other major difference is that this new product utilizes optical sensors rather than laser internals. This has several pros and cons, which we’ll discuss in more detail, but the overarching point to realize here is you get nearly the same mouse for less money. We’re certainly fans of getting good value, so let’s take a closer look at the Rapoo 7100P and find out if it's really is a bargain.
