Choosing a Wireless Network PCI-E Card Adapter to Handle Multi-Player Gaming

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Wireless USB Network Adapter in my desktop. Ive used one for years until I damaged the USB Adapter, and so I went and bought a replacement one, the Linksys AE2500 Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter, and Im getting constant ping above 200, while my voice-chat server is choppy.

So Im looking into buying a Wireless Network PCI-E Card Adapter to handle gaming, voice-chat, etc. I was looking at the TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, but wanted to get you guys suggestions. Basically, I spent $40 on the USB adapter, which I am definitely going to return, and Im looking for something around the same price that will actually work.

Linksys Link (I bought in store)

Also my computer is only about 10ft away from router, in the same room

If you are only 10ft away, I'd just suggest you running a CAT5E cable.

but if you insist on using WiFi, here is my suggestion.
