Default The best wireless card

Okay guys a wired connection is not an option for me so I will have to get a wireless PCI card.
I want the best card for under 40 as my router is around two bedrooms away from my PC so I want the best connection I can get.
It will have to be compatible with 64bit vista/windows7 and preferbly either from: Novatech or Ebuyer.

Thanks.

This would be a good one to get: D-Link AirPlus Xtreme-G DWL-G520

Was about to order it then I noticed how old the reviews are so searched the D-Link website and its discontinued so went to see what drivers there were for it and it turns out it only supports windows up to XP.

So how about this:

Its also works with vista 64it so would I have any problems using it on windows 7?

Try this: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=NW-041-EX
It has an added antenna for additional range, and me and a few others I know, currently use this.
I haven't had any issues with it whatsoever.

Either of the Edimax adapters would do the job.

I checked D-Link's site and found Vista drivers for the adapter here: D-Link Techinal Support - 802.11g Wireless LAN PCI Card - DWL-G520
