Need a new wireless adapter

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, my wireless adapter is currently only causing me issues. Lag I can attribute that to a terrible internet connection, but losing a connection, constantly having to reset it, that's the adapter.

Anyway, I would like to get a replacement for my computer, one that is less likely to constantly fail. I would like to go with an internal one this time. Preferably something smallish so if I do go with a crossfire setup in the future, I can keep the wireless card in there with some modification of the video card cooler and such. PCI is preferred as the PCI-e slots I'm planning on dedicating to video cards. If I have a PCI-e x1 slot on my motherboard, that may be used as well.

Heh, I was kind of hoping for something in the rang of FAR more reasonable.

Have you checked into USB options? If you are wanting to keep your PCI slots free, its an option. I have a USB dongle for bluetooth and it takes up virtually no space.

My current adapter is a USB one. It could very well just be a bad adapter over all. If you know of a decent one that, say, doesn't constantly fail when playing Minecraft, then please tell me.

TP-Link 150mbps high gain. (Model no. TL-WN722N).

Can't link being on tapatalk. I just put together a rig and went with this after a good deal of research. It being an N adapter makes it strong/fast, and the 150mbps is better than what you'll find at Wal-Mart. A bunch of good reviews, too.

People that tell you to go 300mbps are ridiculous-- you'll never saturate that kind of bandwidth. Save some money and get the one above.

I even think 150mbps is a bit much. I could probably get away with a G adapter, seeing as the router I have on hand for when I move out is a G one.

If that's the case, I'd honestly just sort by price on newegg and get the absolute cheapest that has 4 or 5 stars.

I've been using this for the past year.

works about just as good as wired internet for me and I am half way across the house from the router.

EDIT:
Speed test results.



And we technically have 15MB download 1.5MB upload.
