Wireless N: USB vs Firewire vs Cardbus

Hello, I have an older Acer Travelmate 630 that I am trying to get some more mileage from. I need to add an external wireless N adapter, and am not sure if I should go with a USB, Firewire or PCMCIA (Type II Cardbus) wireless adapter. My home router is a Netgear N750.

My laptop offers USB 1.0, 1.0 x Firewire, or a Type II Cardbus PC slot. Isn't the Cardbus the faster interface, or does it not matter because there is another bottleneck in the system I am not aware of?

Thanks for any help!
