I've just build a 64-bit Windows 7 PC but am unhappy with the piddly performance of the Linksys USB wireless dingle I've used. What is a good PCIe alternative that will be stronger for the connection and maybe faster. I don't see why my desktop should show a weaker performance on wireless than my laptop when it's sat next to it or even my Palm Pre for that matter.

Any thoughts?

UK based, max around £60ish.

What about the D-Link DWA-556 available for £45 ?
