Wireless adapter

My old pc doesn't have wifi so I need a wireless adapter. An employee at best buy told me to get something with dual band so it wouldn't cut out.

This laptop I have currently is a cheap acer aspire one and it cuts out constantly, my ping will jump to 1-2000 playing wow for no reason all the time so I want something good. I'm about 50 feet from the router and on the 2nd floor.

It's a 7 year old windows xp (sp3), 2 gigs ram, amd athlon x2 4200, pci or usb is fine. Don't want to spend more than 50. Thanks for your time.

  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forum!

    Look into this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124327

    I have three of these in three different desktops and all work fine. In use for about a year. They should be fine in your laptop too.

    On an older XP laptop I have a Linksys PCMCIA card - works fine.
  2. Yeah, a USB adapter will work fine if you get a decent one. Otherwise, you could always tear open your laptop and replace the internal wireless card... ;)
