Best cheap wireless adapter.

I have a desktop computer that's in a different room from the router and I need to connect it to the internet.
I have a PCI-E slot and USB available, but from what I've understood PCI-E is better?
What would you recommend?

p.s. I've looked at a ASUS PCE-N15 anyone had experience with that model?
p.p.s. Budget is ~$35

  1. Hi :)

    My shops rarely sell pcie wireless cards any more as they can have a problem with the signal getting blocked by the metal at the back of the case, unless they have an extendable aerial...

    We sell the Netgear 150 and 300s a lot as they have an extension holder to sit on top of the case or desk...very good they are as well....my son uses one at home...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. I never heard that the PCI ones were any better than the USB ones, either way I got this one for I think $10 or $15 and have been using it for the past 4 months or so and it doesn't give me any problems.

  3. I use the same one as mace and I've had my computer running on it for a year. I've done everything from gaming, downloading, and streaming so it is built to perform.

    I use a cheap wireless adapter that works great. Its called the TP-Link TL-WN727N 11NGB 150 Mbps Wireless Adapter. Its great for gaming and streaming videos. Regularly its $20 but I found it for $4 on ebay. It works great and I can get through my day easily with it. Heres the link.
