WiFi on my new rig

#1BeerOnTapPosted 1/27/2014 9:14:00 PM
I built a new rig.. So far I have been using my Nexus 7's tether ability over USB to get WiFi.
But if I didn't want to have to be tethered to my N7 all the time, is this what you guys use as the solution?

or a usb adapter like this

I'll assume the card will give more reliable connection?

I prefer PCI-E 1x cards myself.

Yeah the PCIe card is the better option, especially considering that you're so far away from your router that running an Ethernet cable is not an option.

That being said, an Ethernet power line adapter is a better option:

Oh my... Had no idea something like this existed...
So you mean to tell me it can use my home's electrical outlets/wires as a wired connection?
Are there any stipulations, hiccups, or weird requirements to how my home is wired?

Do tell, please!

It works best when the two outlets are on the same circuit.
