I am looking for a good wifi card for long range use. I set up a computer in my shop behind my house. Its around 210 feet maybe a tad further from the computer in my shop to the router in my house. I might also be in the market for a stronger router if needed. I can use either a PCI or a PCI-E wifi card in the system in my shop. Something that will be able to maintain a strong signal. Any sugestions would be great thanks

HI,
1:- I have few option for you, fist buy a good quality wireless router, (you need a wireless N dual band)

2 :- buy a D-LINK DWA-552 Xtreme N Desktop Adapter. (this is high speed network card and speed is up 600mb)

3:- Now you need Wifi 2.4GHZ 16 DBI Booster Antenna (it cover more range )
