Hello everyone, this is kind of embarrassing for me, but I'm a little confused as to connecting to the internet with my newly built PC. I've been looking around on the internet and I'm guessing that I have to get some sort of wireless card. This is my motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I don't think it has built in wifi. So now I'm thinking would getting a USB wireless adapter be better, or an internal wireless adapter be better? Could someone maybe point me in the right direction for nice USB wireless or internal adapter? I already have internet in my house. My modem and router are in the room right under me, so using an ethernet cable is of no use to me :lol:

Its a nice motherboard but like you said, does not contain internal wifi.
So basically you'll need to add a wireless card or USB adapter.

both samples posted support 150Mbs which should be more than enough for day to day use.

Thank you for your reply! I'll look into those shortly. Another question, would there be any difference using 150 mbs and 300mbs with playing games online, or is 150 more than enough for that sort of stuff?
