This is my 1st time to build a computer! I want to connect to my cable internet and email service through my Motorola wireless router. I am purchasing an ASUS Sabertooth X79 Motherboard. Do I need to purchase some type of add-in card or something else to have the computer use WIFI?

You help is greatly appreciated.

Hi there,


Don't get any PCI wireless card. Get instead USB, it has more power, faster reconnecting times and longer distance coverage.

I have Amped Wireless UA600 and after I got rid off my Linksys PCI card for this, What a difference that is. (I had this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

No more disconnections, PCI device slows down the boot time too. When I start the PC, type the password, and click on tom's HW shortcut, it is displayed in a second!

With that PCI (had 2 more to try) it started to connect after log in and it took few seconds.

Love it! My wife's iPad has about 6 networks to connect, I have about 40!

Linksys had about dozen.

Also this USB has 2 USB connections, for better strength, as it supply more power.
