Which speed/type of PCI wireless network card should I use?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've moved into a property that only has Wi-Fi (no idea what it is, can't access the room the router/modem is in).

The last time I used Wi-Fi on my PC was in 2005, so the 56Mbps card I used then is probably too slow and I know it doesn't have Windows 8 x64 drivers available for it.

What kind of card do you suggest for a new one?

My upper limit is £20 and I'd prefer to order from Ebuyer or Amazon UK.

Tar guys, I really appreciate it smile.gif

You can't access your router? Um, are you renting somewhere or what?
Anyway... this Asus one seems good. With great reviews. thumb.gif

Renting a room in a House of Multiple Occupancy, yes smile.gif

We've since discovered the ISP is TalkTalk, eww tongue.gif

That card, by the way, is PCI-E (too small).

I ordered this (TP-LINK TL-WN851ND) in the end, £16 in total with delivery.
