In the process of upgrading both out modem and my wifi dongle on the PC and wondered if anybody had any reccomendations for a good stable wireless adaptor for my PC. I'm currently using the linsys AE1200 which is absolute rubbish and continually drops the connection.
I was thinking this : http://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139235/CATID=338/ID=15412/SID=958511188/productdetails.html when it comes back instock but am open to suggestions if there are better options. The PC is housed a few walls away from the modem (intestingly my old toshiba laptop never dropped connection and no one else's ever does).
cheers

Im upstairs above the router and always have full signal and have never had a dropped connection.

They also have a dual antenna one which I have not tested.

I have recently upgraded to the Netgear N900 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter (http://www.netgear.co.nz/home/products/wireless-adapters/ultimate-wireless-adapters/WNDA4100.aspx) - I can highly recommend this USB adapter - great performance and range.
