Im looking for a good deal on a PCI wireless card, preferably a good one as im on ADSL2+ or whatever its called and can download at 3000k/sec but my routers location isnt good.

A full range of them there, from £6.98 to £78.19. It's either 54MPS or 108 MPS or 125 MPS.

I'd recommend buying the same manufacturer as the router because they always work best with me.

It's not always there's a good deal. Could I ask is there an certain PCI Wireless Card your interest in? So we can help you find the best deal.

well to be honest something that has a decent spec around the £15 mark, i guess something with mimo (i think its called) or whatever good technologic card is out really

mainly dont want to be spending money on an old card, maybe something with a good antena

bump for another day

This seems good:

and at a good price.

Just remember that the 108, 125.etc usually only works in that mode if both the wireless card and the router use the same chipset type.

If you're not planning to move your system around much, you'd be much better buying a flat ethernet cable and laying that under the carpet or along the walls instead. You'll find it much faster, and the reliability of wireless is extremely poor. It'll only cost three quid too, which is a bonus.

Yep I'd recommend an Ethernet Cable too. I have wireless and there can be load's of problems. Plus the Etherent Cable is a lot cheaper than wireless.

good idea but i need my router downstairs to get full use of my 24mb connection as if my ISP increase's the speed it becomes very unstable due to the poor line upstairs, i dont really have anywhere to hide network cabling and it helps being able to use my laptop around the house

i just look at cards like this and i guess maybe because of the price it seems like it would be the most realiable one to get

obviously that is a very uneducated thing to say lol
