Decent wireless network card?

  1. Alright so I've been through two extremely cheap network cards on my computer so far, and typically they've done this thing where they'd be fine (30-70 ping) and then thered be points to where they would get 800-1k ping and sometimes 2k ping. Most of them I've totally destroyed through rage, or by messing with the antenna (or what have you one was a USB) until I got my ping back.

    Is there anywhere I can get a network card that will frigen work, and I'm pretty sure it's not my router because I had a laptop which had no problem with internet (other than -2 fps on most games).

    I was thinking this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0054L9PWO/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF

    I just bought two D-Link products a DIR-412 3G Wireless Router and a DWA-525 PCI Adapter card. Whilst I had initial setup issues due to the PCI cycling off & on indiscriminately. The actual D-Link interface is very, very good with loads of individual settings you can make changes to. You can even set a White-list for sites to visit or block, it includes up to 24 IP addresses you can incorporate into your personal profile. All linked into a secure Users facility "Hosted @ D-Link"
