Thread Starter 
I do alot of gaming and download some stuff. What's a good USB wireless adapter for my desktop. 300mbps. Also does anyone know of any USB 3.0 ones?

how far is your router from your computer? if it's far + your walls are thick, i would recommend a pci slot ones. These generally can get further range and more stable. The usb ones generally dont connect that far + slower speeds in my experience with them

compared to a "regular" pci wireless card.. it gets whipped ( some cards are good, or you can get a mini-pci converter and put in a Intel 6600 something wireless n card.. forgot the exact model cause i am leaving )
