Wondering if someone could recommend a decent adapter?

Been looking at these but not overly sure what I'm looking at spec wise. Never really got into networking

How do you connect to the internet at the moment? Do you use a router? (square/rectangle box with an aerial on top of it) Who's internet are you on?
If you don't use a router now, there's no point buying a wireless card as it'll have no use whatsoever.

Laptop has a WiFi adapter built in.
Desktop used to connect via wired but have recently begun using it again in a new house where the router is in the living room and cannot be moved.


I know what I need and want but wanted some recommendations really. I wouldn't be asking for a wireless adapter if I didn't have a router... :D

In the Search box on thsat page you linked us to, type in:

pci wpa2

and click go. Any of them (with an expansion bracket) should work fine.

Thanks. So a higher MBps is better obviously, but anything else I should be looking out for?
