Recommendations for Wifi adapters

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

I'm looking to see what options I have for my 2 PC's concerning connecting to a wifi signal.

My situation is I may be moving soon to a new place & initially may only have a wifi signal to use so I am trying to prepare ahead of time.

I currently only use a ethernet connection for both of them & have never needed to consider wifi adapters for either of these PC's.

 

I'm not sure what to choose for PC1.

For PC2 I was thinking this might be ok ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/PCE-N10-Wireless-wireless-connection-Software-x/dp/B004XFYGNK

 

PC 1:

CPU: Ryzen 1600

Mobo: asrock gamigX https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/Fatal1ty X370 Gaming X/index.us.asp

RAM: DDR4 G.skill TridentZ @2800mhz

GPU: GTX 1070 evga sc

2 samsung evo ssd's (256gb & 500gb)

PSU: 620w seasonic

 

PC 2:

CPU: i5 3450

Mobo: MSI Z77A G45 https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/z77ag45

RAM: Corsair DDR3 16GB @1600mhz

GPU GTX 970

1 ssd & 1 HDD

PSU: 620w seasonic

 

Any recommendations ?

Thanks.

 

P.S I hope I posted this in the right area if not could a mod move this to the correct area.

Any of them work fine, depending on the speed you wish to achieve.  From the USB ones to the PCIe ones.

 

What's the speed where you're at?

My current speed where I currently live is 50mbps down - 5mbps up which is fine for what I need & use it for.

 

So the adapter I linked to should also be ok for PC1 I listed ? I just wanted to make sure I bought something that was compatible with the newer hardware as my PC2 is a lot older.

I'd just pop for 2 USB ones, so you don't have to open the case.  Cheap and easy.  Done.
