Windows 7: What wireless adapter should I use for Win 7

What wireless adapter should I use for Win 7

I have just posted in the Drivers section of the problems I am having with my usb Linksys 600N wireless adapter. By the looks of the comments my problem seems a common one with no solution yet. I am therefore looking at buying a new wireless adapter, either internal or usb. My only requirements are that it is able to download at high speeds and is fully compitable with windows 7. Does anyone have any suggestions as what to get.
I live in the UK,
I have win 7 64bit ultimate
my mobo is a Foxconn Destroyer
my internet is adsl (virgin still won't cable my area)

Thanks in advance
Luis

Hi mate. I too run Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. I have a couple of ALFA Wireless USB Adapters in our house. Very powerful beasties (i.e. Good range), and they can also be used to test out how secure your wireless network is! (i.e. Backtrack etc). The Model No. is AWUS036H. They can be quite pricey, but you should be able to grab one off feebay for around 30ish.

Hope this helps?
