11.10 wifi adapter

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm current ly running this setup.

Asus m5a970
G skill sniper 8gb ddr3 1600
Athlon x2 240
Sapphire hd 5870

Ubuntu 11.10 fully updated (64 bit)

Heres my problem...

I have tried using my Motorola Atrix (unlocked/rooted/2.3.6) as a usb wifi adapter via usb tethering over my home wifi network.

Result: epic failure.

So I've decided to purchase a wifi adapter.

I'm looking for pci-e mini, but would consider usb if the performance was right.

Heres my pre requisitions.

-long range, through many signal obstacles, including concrete walls.
-low profile, limited space for antennae.
-networking features for dlna, media share, general home/office networking and similar data sync services (pc to pc / phone to pc / phone to printer / pc to printer etc.)
-dual band for future upgrade compatibility
-plug and play compatibility for windows 7 / ubuntu/linux (multiple distro's)
-under $40


Any help would be awesome, I'm hoping for end user feedback as reviews online/ubuntu wiki have been very conflicting.

The connection is fairly stable and works very well.

Most broadcom chips now work too, try looking up broadcom based wifi adapters.
