Wireless PCI Card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit running on my i7, and I was looking for the best possible options for a wireless internal card for my station, Ive read that there were issues with some cards being that they were unable to support 64bit. Which cards do you recommend I get for a PCI/PCIe setup?

I recommend an external USB WiFi adapter. I'm having lots of problems with my internal PCI WiFi overheating due to the proximity with the GPU and having all sorts of interference.

just use the external USB as they are cheaper and more effective

I dont think EKW808 will have the same overheating issues Ronin!

I cant recomend one but dont get the more recent netgear models - i have had to return 4 from clients (might have been a bad batch as i bought the stock all at once)!

Model - WPN311

I have plenty room on my motherboard so I dont think overheating will be an issue, also I dont like USB's because of the ON/OFF factor and id rather have a card operating 24/7. Although i have quite a few usb slots id rather have an internal so i dont have to worry about losing the card, or hitting it and breaking the stick.
