Best option for wireless gaming

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am officially on co-op, and my employer is paying for a shared apartment. There is absolutely zero possibility of running cables, so I have to go wireless. I only have one PCI-e 1x slot free in my computer. I have been looking at these two wifi adapters:

asus pce-n13
dlink dwa-556

I have heard horror stories over the asus which state it is not properly shielded. This can result in audio and video stutter if it is placed closely to other components, which it would be. I haven't been able to find much on the d-link.

The other option is to use a wireless bridge, which I have never done before. This is the router I would be using:

I'm not sure if it is able to do this. If so as far as I can tell I can use a wireless bridge like this:

So if I do this I should be able to plug the lan from my computer into the bridge? If I do this would other wireless devices still be able to connect to the router? Can I still plug other computers/game consoles into the router?

You could also consider a USB wireless adaptor and a USB extension cable.

I always heard that USB adapters worked poorly.

i set up one of these as a repeater/bridge for my nephew
ASUS WL-330gE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16833320025R

flahsed it with dd-wrt and it works great
was a little tough to get going (by default dd-wrt assigns the wireless to wan instead of lan)
