MN University has a wireless-internet networked/casted throughout Dinky-town (see start-tribune). I have been playing wi-fi games on my DS Lite. Now I am wondering (since I don't know what type of air-waves are being produced) what should I buy for my computer: Wifi adapter or Wireless adapter?

And if you know, what is a good brand in the $50 price range?

I could be wrong, and please correct me someone if I am, but aren't they both the same thing pretty much? Also, I would trust Netgear and Linksys the most.

They are the same, just depends on what the manufacturar likes to say, just make sure to get wireless g, wireless b is slower. Brands: linksys and d-link are winners, Netgear is ok also, but, I always found the drivers to be a pain in the rear.
