In my experience none of them are without issue, especially if you use the bundled software. I suggest finding a cheap one on the egg and googling problems with it to see what you'll be facing.

Honestly the Zonet USB ones have been the best in my experience (they're on Newegg for $15-20 IIRC depending on if you want G/N).
I've used internal cards from just about every brand and it was far more consistant (signal strength) than any of the others.

You should probably get a PCI wireless card. Like this one.

He should get a USB or PCIe adapter for future use.

You can check the router itself, it might say on it or just look up the model # as suggested.
Honestly though if the difference between the N and the G version is only $5, you may as well go for the N (it's backwards compatible + could use it if you get a newer router).
