Looking for a wireless usb adapter.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Thinking of doubling my internet speed or increasing it, considering that my brother's crappy wireless is just faster than mine.

This is the one i want

But i don't think ncix have any in stock so i might have to get this one.
Asus

Any other good ones ?

No dice, i barely have space between my prelude and the 8800gt+ accelero s1+turbo module . There's like an inch or less of clearance between the two.
