Default Slow and inconsistent wireless connection

Hey guys,

My desktop's Wi-Fi connection has never been any good, and I've had a bridge connected from my desktop to laptop and used my laptop's wireless connection as it's a lot more stable.
I'm getting pretty sick of having to turn my laptop on every time I'm going to use my desktop, and I'm pretty much wasting electricity.

If I do use my desktop's connection I will get connection problems for 5-10 seconds on a regular basis, so I need your help to fix this. What do I need? I was thinking of a new Wi-Fi adapter or something like that, but I'm not too certain about what I need for my type of network and computer.

If you could tell me what to do/what to get that'd be much appreciated!

Tell me if you need more information about my internet-connection, I'll add my specs;

why dont you just use cable if its a desktop?


otherwise this one would do if you have the pcie x1 slot free

Having a cable running through the house isn't an option.

If every regular PC comes with a PCIE slot then I do have one, otherwise I have no idea.

Okay. Anything cheaper than $35 bucks that might do the same trick? Thanks for your help by the way.

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Networking, Wireless Networking, Wireless Adapters, $10 - $25, PCI Express

any of these will do, but check wireless data rates(higher is better) and security protocols(look for WPA2).

My download speed is 12.10 Mbps, and my upload speed is just below 5 Mbps, does that mean if I purchase an adapter that has a wireless data rate of 150 Mbps I will not have any issues with speed considering 12.05 is nowhere close of it's limit?

Will this one do the trick?

Free international shipping or just domestic? I'm not too interested in paying another 20 bucks plus another $6000 for the postage in Norway...

Have you personally bought stuff from that website?

i personally have not but i know of a lot of people that have. if you wish for certain free shipping find a "guam" based site and order something similar there

also you dont need to run a cable across the house. just drill holes where needed and run the cable on the edge between walls and ceiling abit more work for overall better expirience. and it would be cheaper, since net cables are perversly cheap
