I think my current one is dying or malfunctioning (on PC) that it drops out for long periods of time , but wifi on my ipad works quite well.


Cheers!

The TP-LINK TL-WN822N seemed to work well enough when I tried one out:

I've seen it recommended on this message board in the past. It has a smaller USB connection, but came with an adapter and worked fine for desktop use. I normally use a wired connection though, so didn't try out the adapter for long.

Asus pce-ac66. That and the ac68 are pretty much the best. Netgear makes some half decent pci cards. I had one from best buy last me a good three years until I gave the computer to a friend, and it's still going strong.

I had an asus USB adapter that worked great. No connection drops and played games well enough. I got the ac66 and everything thing is as smooth as butter. Those little stutters I got are gone and I guess I forgot what a web page loading fast was.

Personally, I suggest ethernet based devices over usb/internal. The main reason is because it's more flexible and drivers are less likely to be an issue in the future.

ahh i think my wireless network card may have been damaged, because my mum was vacuming the floors and she even vacummed the back of my PC tower, so would that have damaged the wireless antennas or something?
