I have a router in my basement, and a desktop in the office upstairs, about 20 feet away through walls. With my laptop, which has a 5300 bgn card, i get a consistent 80% + signal with 100+mbps connection.
I've had trouble in the past using a Airlink 101 golden N usb adapter on the desktop, not sure if that's bc it's an off brand or not. But I'm curious if going PCI would be better?
Does anyone have experience using similar interfaces?
I put the laptop right next to the desktop and the laptop stays strong while the desktop w usb adapter always drop to 26mbps or less, consistenly, but still maintains a 60-80% connection strength.
I'm on windows 7.
