This should be in the networking section. About your question, Are you looking for a router or a adapter? I have had good luck with Linksys products.

Hello Jax,

how long of a range are we talking here? Are you going to be shooting Internet across a small town or just from your basement to your upstairs? I really like LinkSys stuff (dido Memory...) and have always had great luck with it. However, I can tell you that if you are looking for max range, I have been messing with the really high end Belkin stuff and have been having some good luck with it. The Belkin products are harder for me to use, even with an extensive background in dealing with wireless specs I still seem to mess them up sometimes.

I would say for all around cost verses function, Linksys is your number one bet.

Peace~~

An AGP slot holds a graphics card, not a network adapter.

For USB why not just get a Wireless USB Adapter? - My Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 stick works a treat

I'm sure he has a PCI slot for the adapter, unless they're all full?

Well, if you don't have any normal PCI slots (not PCI-E, that's more for graphics cards, and you have AGP), your best bet will be something like what Bugg said, a wireless USB adapter.
