Recommending a hardware forum.



My gf hates my pc being in the main living area, but that's the only hard access point.  Does anyone have good USB AND PCI wireless adapter suggestions?  I would prefer USB because I am computer-retarded, but I have available PCI slots.

I usually stream my gameplay, so keep that additional tug on the bandwidth in mind. I just moved apartments, but I am quoted at 30 down, 3 up.  I just need the wireless to be good enough to play games with a low ms, and preferably stream with a low ms too.

I might end up giving that a try, but I am DIY retarded. Thanks.

No noticeable lag or spikes or anything?  How far away is your router?

I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be happy with a wireless connection given that your gaming and streaming video. Interference can cause intermitenent performance issues that you might find unacceptable.
