Hi,

I'm looking for a Wireless N PCI (NOT PCI-e if can be helped) card. It would be good if it supports dual band and would like it to be a decent brand.

Quite happily buy the one below but cannot find it on any NZ sites:

Can anyone recommend any others?

Thanks for any help.

I haven't used TP-Link much, do you think it will be decent quality?

Tplink arent too bad, I'm using one of their Wireless N modems atm. So far so good. I'll probably get one of their 8 port gigabit switches this week. To see what thats like

I can't really see the difference between the first link and 2nd one?

Although I like the one below since it has dual band support.

He probably means PCIe x16 which i dont believe you can find netowrk cards for.

There's no reason a WLAN card would need to use a full 16 lanes...

Maybe you have really fast internet :P

That would have to be damn fast. A 16-lane PCI-E slot starts at 4GB/s for v1 and goes upwards from there. Somehow I think even 802.11n is going to have a hard time keeping up with that!

Yea I couldn't find any PCI dual band ones and turns out I do have 2 spare PCI-e ports :) I like where the coversation headed from there though haha

I envy the man who had internet requiring PCIe x16. Although it could be pluged into x16 but only using x8
