    it helps to have this information up front ..... :squint:


    is your router B or B/G?)....... B has better range through walls than A, but G is less susceptible to noise. A just plain sucks through walls (you don't have A, nevermind that).

    you can try that card but don't count on the "rangebooster" unless your router is N, too.

    get a G card, disable all the B rates on the router and the card.........that might help.

    that $100 card will do no better than the two $39 ones I linked
