So my new build will be in my room on the third floor and I currently have no Ethernet cables on this floor. I also have a secondary router bridging my wireless connections and get pretty decent connection for gaming as I've tested on my laptop. I was looking into the best PCI-E/USB network adapters and literally every single one seemed to have several complaints in their review sections ranging from things such as hardware failure to dropped connections. Any personal recommendations for gaming? The secondary router is dual band and the main router is not. Thanks for the time, Newegg preffered :)

If you want a stable gaming experience, don't go wireless. I'd recommend powerline or good old ethernet cable. Here is why : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sue1Zvmh8JA

Now if your only solution is wireless, the very best combo right now is the AC network router from Asus with it's dual band wireless adapter.

Note that your network will be as fast and stable as the worst part of your networking hardware. This means that you should upgrade the router and wireless adapter at the same time. Your internet provider gets in the equation to. You will need a good upload/download speed rate and a reliable provider.
