Which Wi-Fi adapter to use with Linksys E4200 for 450Mb/s?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey dear OCNers!

The title is pretty clear imo, I've bought Cisco Linksys E4200 and now I am wondering what kind of wi-fi adapter would allow me to employ it's advertised 450 Mb/s speeds to maximum. Will it be a PCI-e adapter? If so, can you recommend a particular model? I've heard about some Intel adapter but isn't it built in laptops?

Need it for my rig but can't use cables. Hence the need for strong adapter.

All the help is much appreciated!

I have the same router with this adapter: TRENDnet dual band and rarely see the advertised speeds. The majority of the time it sits at 150-300mbps and spikes to 450 every now and then. It was the only 450mbps ethernet adapter available in stock when I purchased it a month or two ago, and it seems there still aren't many others available. In all fairness though I'm about 30-40 feet away from the AP and passing through/around a few walls so YMMV of course.
