PCI or USB Wifi


I have a computer in a real bad spot, about 60 feet away sitting behind a plasma. I have a usb key in right now, some cheap brand getting only about 500 kps per second. Incredibly slow. The router is a Dual Band Netgear, supposed to go 150/300 MPS on 2.4 and 300 MPS on 5.0.

From what I gather, PCI adapters tend to be stronger. Is this right?

If so, I have narrowed down to two cards. The TP link has over 150 reviews avg. 4.7. The Rosewill has 5 reviews 4.7. But the Rosewill is 17 cheaper at 32. Which do you recommend?

Rosewill Wireless N Dual Band Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Upto 450Mbps Data (RNWD-N9003PCe) or

TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter,2.4GHz 450Mbps/5Ghz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n,WEP, WPA/WPA2.

  1. I only use PCI(e) cards in desktops and all work fine. I have a couple of Rosewill cards they work fine.
