Help - I Need a WiFi Adaptor For My Desktop

478 7
I need a wifi adaptor for my desktop. I'm looking at a USB style antenna but I'm open to an internal card if it's better.

What about this one:

I have used prior versions of the below items(USB-AC56, and PCE-56). I was very happy with them. What is your rated network speed and what router do you have?

I use TP-Link N600 Gigabit Ethernet Ceiling Mount Wireless Access Point (EAP220). 300Mbs on 2.4Ghz.

My router is built into the radio receiver on my roof. I'm not sure the brand or specs. I use an air-fiber type setup to get my Internet signal. It's the best option where I live. I bring the signal to a switch inside then have the TP-Link AP's around the house.

Once you get past the pretty plastic case.. nearly all of them are either Ralink or Atheros chipsets and will work so long as it's specs meet your routers capabilities. According to the specs, that device you linked to supports both 2.4ghz and 5ghz, and supports all current wireless protocols (ac/a/b/g/n).

IIRC, don't you use a Mac? If you're using Windows it should be no problem at all.... it will probably even work with a Mac, but it's not specifically listed as a supported OS.

I installed the device I linked from Amazon in the OP and it is working great. I'm at the edge of my signal but this antenna is working great.
