I want to get internet in a desktop PC in room across house. I have WIFI threw my router/modem from Centurylink. Will a wireless card be my best option? I don't want to run an ethernet cord across whole house either. ny recommendations on a good card too if so? I have an xtra router laying around too, is that route hard to do? seems like a card might be easier.

thx in advance

Greatest wireless product of all time.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

I've got this, best wireless component i've ever owned. First USB based one.

Completely directional, comes with a 5 foot extension if you use the dock. 99% signal strength 100 feet away through multiple walls. |

I have had better experiences with PCI cards. I have a Linksys WMP600N . There is barely any miliseconds added to my latency if at all, and I get the full down and upload speed available to me.

Personally, I prefer something ethernet based because it's more versatile and less likely to have compatibility issues in the future, either a wireless ethernet adapter or a homeplug (the latter may be more reliable as well than wifi).

Another option is to see if your extra router supports a or can be hacked to install a firmware which does support it.
