    Hi
    As in title, can anyone recommend a decent wireless n PCIe card. Nothing too expensive, assuming the slightly cheaper ones aren't rubbish.

    See that's the sort of thing I'm hoping to avoid. Given their price, I think I may as well stick with the dongle I'm using until I see a good deal on an N router.
    Cheers for the replies anyway :thumb:

    I actually have that one, and before that i had a dongle. The dongle was plain unreliable and it annoyed me. The one given above is much better, I put it straight in, just used the CD in the box never had any problems since. And it connects over quite a distance. Then again that might be why the dongle failed sooo bad:)

    I read over on SmallNetBuilder.com that a good solution is to get a mini-PCIe-to-PCIe adapter and then go for something like a Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 6300 NIC. (Just found the links with a Google search, so there might be better offers out there.)

    Sounds cumbersome, but apparently should be one of the best WiFi solutions available (the Intel card).
