Advice on a good AP for gaming/streaming

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm currently in the market for a decent AP or wireless card/adapter to put in my rig mainly for gaming and streaming purposes. Yes, I know the big debate over latency issues with wireless set-ups when it comes to things like this, but quite frankly, I cannot deal with a 100ft cable runnin all throughout my house.

I've heard quite a bit about the Alfa Network products as well as some other things, but I was looking the best bang-for-your-buck as would any other person.

Budget is around less than $100

Thanks guys.

They make ethernet adapters that use your house wiring, might look into that.

By that do you mean like cable jacks?

Yea, it lets you 'hard wire' your house without having to wire your house. You plug a module into the wall, plug your router into it, then plug the other module in whereever you need it and plug your CAT5 into it for a signal. Just a suggestion.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833166060 I put one of these in my brother's and parent's computers. Work pretty well, only thing is that the driver disc they come with (at least mine anyway) were entirely in Korean. So I had to use some Googlefu to find the right drivers, and everything was A-Okay after that. Good luck.
