    Max range wireless adapter

    I'm looking for a wireless adapter USB or PCI that will give me the max range to pick up signals.

    Of the ones I've tried this wouldn't pick up a signal: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833124139

    But this one would:

    So I'm kind of clueless of what is a good one to buy for maximum range.

    Processor - Intel Core i7 860 Motherboard - Intel DP55WB Video - AMD Radeon HD 5750 Memory - 4x 4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 Storage - Intel X25-V, Samsung HD103SJ
    Optical - Samsung SH-S203B Power - Corsair CX400 Speakers - Polk Monitor 40/60, BIC F12 Audio - ASUS Xonar DG, Denon AVR 391 Network - Intel 82578DC, Linksys WRT400N
    Case - Corsair Carbide 300R Cooling - Corsair H100 Operating System - Windows 7 x64 Display - Dell E248WFP, Samsung LN46C630 Keyboard/Mouse - Dell Bluetooth Wireless
    Misc - Apple TV 2, Apple iPad 2, Apple iPhone 4S

    one of these is very good for you I think

    I have this myself

    but, with this antenna on

    My router is set up @ 45ft approximatly. The signal goes through alot of doors and walls

    the standard 2dbi antenna gave me 92dbi signal and 78dbi noise(this is a very very bad signal)

    The antenna I got gives me 69-60dbi signal and 99dbi noise(very good signal)

    didn't cost me much and I really love it, just don't buy the crappy onmi antenne the chinese are advertising on ebay, they usually don't work and signal gets worse because of that restricting cable..
