best value for money wifi

Note, had to update driver to latest version to solve windows stability issues.

The best wifi card you can give a PC!

Reviewed by on

I ordered one of these for a desktop PC in an outbuilding on my property that couldn't be wired up to the home network. The wifi signal is strong outside thanks to an outdoor access point. This wireless card has provided phenomenal performance - pretty much the same as any of the wired PCs! This card pulls 38.5Mbps of my 40Mbps VDSL internet connection. The detachable antennas and separate antenna base is no doubt a huge contributing factor as you can place it in an ideal position without being hindered too much by the PC tower.

Just be aware that the cable for the separate antenna base is not very long, and has a proprietary connection. It's enough to place the base on a desk while the PC tower sits on the floor, with a little more for some extra manoeuvrability. The quality is very solid, for both the internal card and the external components.
