  1. I'm going to go wireless with my family computer and was just wondering what is better, a USB adapter or a wireless desktop card. So if anyone could tell me which i should get it would be very helpful. I do know a lot about networking but i haven't really done any wireless so I'm kinda stumped on this one.

    Card is almost always the better choice. Just take a look at reviews for USB ones on newegg, its pretty rare to find one that works decently.
