Can you tell me which of these wifi adapters is best to connect the PC to the router?

How come these are your options?

Two are USB, one is a PCIe card.

The PCIe card would be the better option long term and it also has Bluetooth. It's Intel based and need antennas sticking out the back of your PC.

The Sitecom seems ok, based on Realtek RTL8812AU.

The Fritz stick seems to be a simple 1x1 device based on the MediaTek MT7610U, whereas the other two are 2x2 adapters, i.e. the other two are faster, if your router is AC1200 or faster.

Depends on:

A) Your needs, ie fast downloads, BT device connectivity, etc...
B) Your router, it's capabilities and number of other wireless devices already connected to it

PS: After experimenting with several brands of USB adapters, I went with a PCIe card, which gave me better sppeds, compatibility + BT 5 also, so if you want a low-priced USB adapter, please pm me, as I have a few laying around now :)

PCI-e is cheaper in the long run as all you have to do is buy the tiny card & pop it in the slot. It's very cheap to buy on Ebay especially if you buy from china.

@RoboX
I would chose the one coming with a Realtek/Intel chip, as they usually have better support when it comes to drivers (as long as they match the chip used).

@bonehead123
pci is not making it faster, its the external antennas (usually larger than for most usb).

Most ppl dont have a +100 Mbit line, and wont need anything past basic.
btw OP asked which one of the 3, so unless we get additional info, might even be a waste to go for anything past 811.n/ac.

I would recommend getting something like a PCI-E x1 adapter that can take a laptop WIFI/BT card. It's great because you can upgrade if needed. I changed my 8260 for a AX200 for only 20$ instead of changing the whole adapter. I would stick with Intel chip personally.

The problem with most of those laptop wifi "cards" is they have internal antennas. This adapter is needed for a PC. PC cases typically are made of metal. An antenna that is contained inside a metal box is not going to be very effective. So again, I say,
For a PC, the UBIT because it has external and adjustable antennas.

Sorry, but why are you replying to me? I'm not the OP.

I replied to you as you posted something about Wi-Fi PCI-e, Bluetooth cards & what I should have said is, if a new faster standard appears in the future, all that is needed is just swapped the tiny card in the slot for the newer one. It's much cheaper that replacing a USB wi-fi card because your not replacing everything.

Everytime a new standard comes along, just swap-out the tiny card. Some Wi-Fi motherboards also have this slot, swap it out to the latest standard. You can also do this to some Laptops too.

I was asking the OP some questions. You don't seem to quite understand how forums work...

And yes, I'm fully aware, I only worked as a tech journalist for well over a decade, I worked for a router manufacturer and I run my own consultancy business, but thank you for pointing that out to me and not the OP.

Yes, but did you also know that on intel cards if you have Bluetooth enabled it disable wi-fi on one antenna. If you switch bluetooth off, you have the benefit of both antennas giving you a stronger signal. Did you know that.

& next time you say I don't know how forums work, you can work things out for yourself.

I myself just went with a cheap wifi usb dual band adapter I got for 13$ CAD from Amazon. My ISP is max at 150mbs and I get that rate from my router (something not so good from Telus imo).

Yes, but for that price or just a little bit more or less, you can have the latest standard with all the bells & whistle if it was PCI-e based with a card slot.

not aware of any in Canada that is a relatively good price. But sure.

Can you link me one? I may purchase one in future.

EBAY.. Do a search on intel cards there's plenty. Remember your just buying the tiny card, but you must have the basic PCI-e card with a slot in-order to use them.

You must uninstall the old drivers before removing the old card. Failure to do this may result in problems when installing the new card.

getting something, just to be able to upgrade, is a waste of money for +80% of users,
and the ones that need more, know it already and wont ask these kind of questions..

but lets say we go with the latest, which is AX.
do YOU have an AX router? you know what they start at? right, lets get an adapter that requires to spend
at least another 100$ before it can work at its best advertised perf.

we dont know the bandwidth of his/her internet connection or what its being used for.
to surf the internet and stream even 4K, wireless N is absolutely fine.

Can you tell me which of these wifi adapters is best to connect the PC to the router?

Sitecom WLA-7100

FRITZ!WLAN Stick AC 430

Ubit WiFi 6 2974Mbp/s Wireless Adapter PCI Express AX200 Bluetooth 5.0 | MU-Mimo | OFDMA | Low Latency
Go with the PCIe card. USB (have not used it in a while) is alright but you will get less drops and faster connectivity with the AX200. Be prepared to be able to download a Steam game, watch a youtube video in 1080P and have your free Epic game downloading at the same time (depending on your ISP speed). The AX200 is no joke I came from a 9260. Though it is not much faster than the 9260, the design of WIFI 6 allows for simultaneous throughput across multiple channels. Watch a video on it and you will agree. The other products are not worth the money vs the AX200. It is the only WIFI card I put in customer builds. Ensure that the card is completely connected though, it can be a real pain in the butt to socket the headers on the card itself. If there is no antenna connected Windows will recognize it but you will get limited performance.

not aware of any in Canada that is a relatively good price. But sure.

Sorry, but did you even read my post? I simply pointed out the features.
Your reply to me was completely random and you're again trying to explaining things to me, for what reason, I know not.
This is why I wonder if you understand the purpose of forums and how they work.
There's no need to educate people that are replying to the OP, that's just going to annoy people.

The adapter is fine with AC, you won't get the speed increase but you will be able to more things at the same time with the AX200 besides the cards are usually $30 on Amazon.

USB or PCIex make no difference for me
Just to point out that the Ubit thing you listed, is using an Intel 802.11ax/Wi-Fi 6 card under the shield. Most likely made by some company in China, as there are at least half a dozen different versions like it on Amazon Italy.
All the discussion here is just people being confused, I'm sorry to say.
There's nothing wrong with getting one of these cards and use with whatever router, as amazingly, Wi-Fi is backwards compatible.
