    Just looking for advice on good PCI wireless cards under the £15 mark, I've already done a forum search and a flick through amazon but it appears to be another one of those things that needs researching.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Build is as follows:

    i7 2600 3.4GHz
    ASRock P67 Extreme4
    2x4GB Corsair vengeance RAM
    asus hd5670 GPU
    etc

    PS. How do signatures work? :confused:

    Sig = User CP, Edit Signature (it's a few down on the left hand column) but you may need more posts before you can get one, not sure on that.

    As for wireless cards, Tenda ones are pretty decent for the price.

    TP-Link stuff is pretty decent, I'd go for that. There's no point spending a fortune on wireless cards as they're all pretty much the same thing inside (build quality and stuff aside).

    I have a tp-link WiFi card and is really good once you loose the small aerial and fit a wired one and sit it on top of the case, now gives great reception of signal.

    I have an Edimax USB dongle for my Wi-Fi, I know it's not internal but it might be something to consider. It gives me a much better reception and speed than my old OEM internal card.

    I have an EW-7717UN but I think the newer model is a EW-7622UMN

    Cheap, cheerful and the wee stand lets you move it about on your desk to get the best reception.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks a lot guys, for the time being I'm gonna use a 30m ethernet cable I had lying around and will probably get a TP card when I get some money together.
