I just built my first pc and realized I can't connect it to the internet. An ethernet cable is out of the question since our router is on the clear opposite side of the house. So now I'm looking at some wireless adapters. I have decided that, for simplicity's sake and portability, I want to go with a usb adapter.

Here's one I'm looking at right now. Is it any good?

Also, any other suggestions? I can spend up to 40 bucks here.

That does look like a good adapter and it has very good feedback. The seperate antenna will give you more range over the typical USB adapter and you can place the antenna in a higher position.

This one is more money but it has two antenna and has very good feedback.
