Best USB Wireless Adaptor for Gaming?

I need an adaptor that's good for gaming and needs a long range connection.
(My other adaptor I bought didn't have good enough range so it does need to have amazing range)
Budget: 20-30 Pounds
THANKS!

instead of getting a wireless adapter, look into power over ethernet if possible.

simply plug one in next to the router and the other next to your pc, then run an ethernet cable from router to the one next to it, and then one from your pc to the other.
then your wires in your house become hiden ethernet cables!!

Yeah its much better than wireless, and much more stable.

wireless is great, but not for gaming in my opinion. I have a decent router with a decent wifi card, and I find I still often get latency issues, lost packets and generally a less smooth experience than with wired.

if youre still a little unsure ebuyer also do wifi range extenders that work in a similar way but instead emit a wireless signal instead of it being wired to your pc.. again id go with my first suggestion!

I'll go with the Powerlines but they have a lot of bad reviews, I am kinda worried Ill buy it and they will be rubbish.
