You won't go far wrong with Linksys, Netgear, D-Link products.

Though Belkin sometimes gets a bad press for its routers, my only complaint about the wireless adapter I have is that its own utilities seem to depend on Windows, so you might as well just use the Windows networking interface -- Netgear and other brands' utilities are free standing.

To confuse you further -- actually all wireless adapters of whatever brand use chipsets from a small number of chip makers so their performance is similar. I've been using real cheapo brand PCI wireless adapters for some years now without problems -- admittedly one of the makers has disappeared and neither had support websites as comprehensive as the big brands.
