I'm building a gaming desktop but because of the modem being down stairs while the room I'm going to be keeping the desktop in will be up stairs, I'm going to have to buy a wireless card.
Now this is where it gets tricky. Because the router is a floor above the desktop the wireless card will have to have a pretty good range, the problem is the router is a wireless G type so the range will be limited. And on top of that because the desktop will be used for gaming, the card will have to have a pretty solid connection.
I've been looking around and wanted to get some peoples opinions on what card they think would work. I'm hoping to keep the price down as much as possible. I'm looking at the TP-Link TL-WN951N card right now but the reviews are pretty mixed, and I'm not sure whether the range will reach.
I thought at that price I might as well future proof for if I get a better connection, but because of my location (New Zealand) I doubt our connections will get good enough to use Wireless N technology any time soon.
