I have had very good luck with Linkys and have had no problems with D-links as well, You may be in a bit of a dead spot you might need a range boster like this one.

I would get a Linksys w/ range booster but i would have to pay the 90 bucks or w/e plus an aditional 50-70 for my second antenna. ouch. I love fast interweb but **** thats exspensive.

hwo bout this 1, i think this external antenna would help, plus it has had good reviews at newegg.

perhaps you might want to try a usb adapter which comes with a cord so you can move it about a bit.

however my one tends to overheat and this leads to jamming, but its on another pc that we dont use as much so it doesnt matter.

I think you should probably stay w/ Linksys or D-Link. Ive never heard of this brand so idk what to tell you.

i use a d-link airplus extremeG card for my laptop. it has awesome range and speed, its 108mbs amd has a range that is better than most G cards. at my freinds house i get better signal to his router with my laptop than his desktop can, and he uses a standard lynksis G card.
