Hmm that adapter seems promising and if I hook it into a USB 3.0 port, will the wireless be faster?

I mentioned earlier that my budget was near $50-$60. (will look at $70 or even $80 ones since black friday is around the corner)

Do you have a router in that price range that is just as good and reliable? Thanks

Edit: Or is that price range too cheap to the point where I would be only getting the budget routers? I have no knowledge of routers haha.

This. I use a WNDR3700 which is basically the same with USB 2.0 instead of 3.0 and it is an absolutely fantastic router. Great range, speed and reliability.

I recommend the e4200, its a great router, I have had zero issues with it and its pretty new (came out the beginning of this year)

not the cheapest router around, but IMHO its the best home router.

edit: nvm I see you wont be spending this much, well if you change your mind, you cant go wrong with this router, other than its out of your budget.

Right for a start.


There are 2 network speeds in your home network.

1. Your connection to your ISP/internet.

2. Your wireless network.


You are usually limited by your ISP speed as wireless speeds start at 54G.

The highest is 300N which will have a broader range so you can be further away.

It will not make your "speed" quicker as it is still limited to whatever speed you are actually achieving through your ISP.


Wireless adapters will not change if used in USB 3 as again it is limited by your wireless speed then your ISP speed.

Buy any wireless N adapter to get the best range USB will do PCI doesn't make a difference, although sometime they come with antennas which provide better signal.

For a router make sure you get one which can connect to your modem and is wireless N for better range.

After this not really much else matters aside from brand.


Traditionally Cisco/Linksys make the best home networking stuff around.

However I've found Netgear to make some cracking routers as well.

Get a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND.
It's right in your budget, supports dd-wrt and is a fantastic router.

I got a (more expensive) DLink DIR-652 recently, but went right back to the TP-Link.
