Now this is where it gets tricky. Because the router is a floor above the desktop the wireless card will have to have a pretty decent range, the problem is the router is a wireless G type so the range will be limited. And on top of that because the desktop will be used for gaming, the card will have to have a pretty solid connection.
I've been looking around and wanted to get some peoples opinions on what card they think would work. I'm hoping to keep the price down as much as possible but don't want his online gaming to be disrupted by low signal/frequent drop outs. I'm looking at the TP-Link TL-WN951N card right now but the reviews are pretty mixed, and I'm not sure whether the range will reach.

I went for a N card as I thought if he did end up upgrading his modem in the future, the range increase of a N card would really benefit him.
There wouldn't really be any Benefit to a wireless N card/Modem in New Zealand apart from the increased range and I guess Lan transferring, right? Am I correct in thinking that with ADSL/ADSL2 the speeds don't get high enough to benefit from the speed increase of N cards?
Any help would be appreciated
