Wireless Adapter for PC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am quite new to building computers and i am wanting to buy a wireless adapter for my PC i have built i have the product i have in mind is
http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/networking/networking/wireless-cards-adapters/asus-pce-n15-n300-pci-wireless-network-adapter-21248453-pdt.html
I believe this will come with a bracket to fit my Mid Tower Case and that my motherboard will accept the PCI-E.

Can someone help me decide if this is the right wireless adapter for me and that it will have good signal and no random dropouts ect?

Thank you,
Brendan

If you want the best signal without any dropouts, you should go with adapters with high quality chip-sets such as Ralink 3070. I'm using a USB dongle adapter with this high powered chipset and it works great. Strong signal is needed because it's not only a one way communication, and the adapter has to transmit a signal to your access point as well. You don't necessary have to go with an internal adaptor. In fact, there's more choices if you go external USB.
