Hi, I bought a trendnet TEW 423 PI a couple years back, and I've had problems with it. More and more over the years, until just after the warranty is over it refuses to work at all. (unless its right next to the router, but... that defeats the purpose of it being wireless) I'm shopping for a new wireless card, but I don't want to get burned again. I'd like to know your opinions on what brands are best (distance, speed, reliability, longevity). I've been noticing a lot of TP link on the shelves, but I've never heard of them, any opinion on them?

Installed one of these in a Windows 7 64-bit box a few months back and haven't heard a single complaint yet. (Knock on wood. :D).

Newegg.com > TP-LINK TL-WN781ND IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Wireless Adapter Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP, WPA, WPA2 - $19.99 with free shipping

Atheros is a pretty good brand too, I've got it in my HP Pavillion (64 bit Win 7) and the range is really good, works from as far as the router will go

What about D-link? Are they reliable? The guy at the store said they were "old news", but you'll excuse me if I don't take his word for it. Any truth to his statement? I'm looking for something that will last well past the warranty. Anyone else got any opinions? Best brands? Brands to avoid?
