post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering which would be better for speed and connectivity. If i got a pci adapter or used a wireless router as a bridge?

Something like an Alpha (or is it Alfa?) WiFi adapter should do the trick if you have connectivity issues.

If you dont have an adapter to connect to wireless right now, how are you even connecting to Wifi?

Unless your router is seriously far from your PC, I would get a good wireless adapter, it matters. I have my router 5 walls away, and used a Asus PCE-13 which had 3 bars out of 5 with 8.0 dbi antennae. Then swapped it out for the new Asus PCE-15 and straight away it had 5 out of 5.

If you have a decent wireless card (Wireless N) already, Get a better router (Wireless N)
