Will this wireless receiver work?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ive been building computers for awhile now, but recently ive been getting alot more buisness. My mom has been talking to people areound her work and she caught the attention of a higher up, he wants me to build him a home/office computer for as cheap as possible, he also specifically mentioned has to have wireless internet, so would this:

work with the AMD build with win7 X64, it should but im worried that in its description it specifically says it works with WEP and WPA, but arent we using WPA2 as our main encryption? So would it work even if he is using WPA2?

I'd go with this one.

I have it and it works really well because the antenna base can be repositioned for better signal. also it supports WPA2!

I'd go with a PCI card more stable in my eyes.

USB based receivers do have it's limitations, but for internet usage, it's fine. I agree with the fellow above and prefer the PCI option, but neither will give you great data transfer rates if you are connecting to your home server or something. That MicroCenter one mentioned above IS pretty good actually... I also bought couple of them just to have and have been working great.
