extensive wifi stick for desktop user here my pc is upstairs meanwhile the router is downstairs, and no matter how powerful the dongle is i will always get random disconnects, heavy packet loss, and lower speeds
i just had to suck it up, buy myself a 100ft ethernet cord and just go ham
>>52428907 It will work as well as your wifi situation allows. I'm giving you grief because without knowing things like the number of walls between your WAP and your desktop, how far they are apart, etc. we can't really tell you. Directional antennas will always be better than a dongle though, but like I said, without knowing your situation it is impossible to know if you would benefit from one or not.
>>52428879 Don't buy a shit one like in the pic, spend money on a decent one. I spent $100 on a d-link ac1900 after making the mistake of buying a cheap one.
If I wasn't a retard though, I would have assured myself that my PCIe wifi card was actually going to fit in my motherboard prior to purchasing it. My PCIe card that I used in my old computer is way more reliable than the usb adapter that I have now (it cuts out for a few seconds after a 1-2 hours).
