wireless - USB vs. PCI


Recommended Posts

This is rather embarassing. I threw out my girlfriend's ancient pc the other day...and forgot to take my wireless PCI card out of it first. So I've got the antenna...that's not going to help me much.


So how much of a difference would there be between using a usb 2.0 wireless adapter versus a normal PCI card? My router is 802.11b if that makes a difference.

I realize the USB adapters are primarily for notebooks, but they're quite a bit cheaper than the PCI ones. Is the price difference justified?


any advice would be appreciated, my gf is ready to kill me for running cat5 all over our apartment...
