This is hands down the best PCI wifi card you can install in you computer.
UPDATED – November 27, 2013
A couple years ago I recommended the MSI antenna, but since my review the price has tripled and kids broke the antenna.
I’ve moved on an purchased an equally sound product that has a superb external antenna, which is what you’re looking for because it improves your signal and speed.
Go buy the Edimax EW-7128Gn 150Mbps Wireless Wifi Card
- The antenna can be extended beyond the back (usually floor level) of the PC! OMG
- Smoking HOT PRICE direct from Amazon $25 US WOW!
- Retard proof 1,2,3 install with CD
- Fully documented well thought out user manual
Lets review the Super Gn 802.11 Wireless PCI card by Edimax.
If you choose to let the Edimax mange your available network it won’t remember the WPA-2 pass phrase (password) so you MUST LET Windows manage the WIFI connection. This is step two after you click “install” on the CD. SO no big deal really just choose “let Windows manage my connections”
Adding to the bullets above.. the antenna is such a huge benefit.. If you have ever tired to install a WIFI card on your PC you know having the antenna at floor level just isn’t going to work. You’ll have poor signal and your connection will drop from time to time. Not with the Edimax EW-7128Gn Wifi card! The antenna can be extended and placed on the top of the desktop or mounted on your desk wall.
I know you’re supposed to get what you pay for but in this case I paid for a great deal. The installation is smooth and the hardware works, period!
And speaking of installation.. my grandma could have installed this.. hell my wife could have installed this! Sorry Tina if you read this I’ll sleep on the couch this week.. and cook.. and clean.
The Wireless PCI card is professionally packaged and well documented. Nothing more does one need in life than hardware that work and software that’s documented.
Purchase the Super G 802.11 Wireless PCI card by Edimax on Amazon.
