lol that one is crap but most USB wireless adaptors iv used actually seem more stable than my current PCI card. Here's some others which arnt too bad. Although i prefer ones that have a wire so can sit on top of my desk.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833162130

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833150021

the 2nd one has the best reviews and buffalo are a good brand.
