    i am looking to buy a new pci wirless card as my dlink 802.11b just can not handle 8mb broadband.also i have a usb stick which should be long rang but i only get two bars signal so i could do with one that comes with a big antena

    i am currenly using a netgear 834gt with a customer big antena so if you feel a netgear card will work better then say!

    also another point the reason i want to get a pci card is because i find then tend not to loose connection or overheat

    so please say what you think cheers:toast:

    so is your router 'G' compatible
    if it is i can find you one

    im in the market for a new wireless adapter, for me at least id like a pci card since they dont overheat and are hidden away and sometimes faster

    MSI PC60G-F 108M Wireless PCI Adapter with eXtended RangeTM and Super G, Atheros,2.4GHz, 802.11g/b
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=636484

    Belkin F5D7001UK 125g Wireless PCI Adapter
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=178495

    The Belkin a little faster but a little dearer. Im assuming the Belkin does B wireless also since the MSI does G/B

    if your router cant support N there isnt really much point in getting an N card even if it does G/B too

    Ralink is good in linux apparently but honestly the MSI i listed is a little faster than the Edimax (ralink)
