    Recommend me a wireless PCI card

    I am looking for a pci wireless card. Theres so many around at similar price and even a brand name can't guarantee quality. I am looking for something quite cheap, but at the same time i'd rather spend a 5er more than end up with a useless heap of junk. Am checking reviews on ebuyer but its quite hard to find the right card even with them.

    My friend is lending me a wireless router, which will be in my room. The card will be in a pc which is in a room behind a corridor and lounge. Not sure how bad this is wireless-wise.

    I know i need a 802.11g card, but which one?

    Ta muchly for any advice.

    Yeah, i went for a usb one in the end (one in post above) as its far easier to swap it to a different pc if needed. Received it yesterday and wireless is up and running. Well, was running, its off now.

    Reception through about 3 walls was 60%, connected at 54Mb and was dccing files through irc at 555kb/s which is about 4 times faster than i managed over lan (i still not figured out what was wrong with that, its utterly rubbish )

    Was very easy to install and even came with its own usb extension stand which was long enough to get it onto the table.

    I'm happy with it.
