I have an old HP Pavilion 9870 that I'd like to connect to that router, but I'm not sure if I need a USB adapter (like this one) or a PCI adapter (like this one). Here are the specs on my HP Pavilion 9870 and it's MOBO.
Motherboard Description Manufacture name: ASUS P4T
I don't know which adapter will work with this MOBO or how to tell, can someone help me out?
Another option would be something like this NETGEAR XAVB101 Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter Kit. Seems kinda cool, but I just don't know if my power outlets and electrical wiring are all part of the same electrical system...which I guess they have to be for this powerline adapter to work. Besides, the other adapter options are a lot cheaper.
This adapter would be for my old HP 9870 PC, so I don't think I need streaming media speed...but at the same time, I'd like to be able to use it on something else later. I don't know if I'll want the 150Mbps over a 300Mbps. If that USB would for sure work, I think I'd like to get one of the following USB adapters (I like the USB over the PCI...plus, the PCI adapters are more expensive and harder to switch around between different machines).
