Windows 7: Wireless Internet Card

Wireless Internet Card

I'd like to know just what (internal) wireless internet card Microsoft employees are using with Windows 7 since I can't seem to find a solid recommendation on line. Is it a secret? I don't want to use a USB-style device on my desktop.

Welcome!

First, while there are a few Microsoft employees that post on these forums, most of us are not related to MS at all. I fall into the latter category.

Now, I use this wireless card in my desktop: Newegg.com - Rosewill RNX-G300LX IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Wireless Card Up to 54Mbps Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP, 802.1x, WPA, WPA2, AES, TKIP with 2 dBi Antenna - Wireless Adapters

That is a very cheap card. If you want something a bit better, look on Newegg.com, for wireless g card. If you have an n router, you may want to consider searching for wireless n card.

I find the customer reviews to be very helpful. A reliable card looks like this:

A not-so-reliable card:

Good luck!

I, too, use a very cheap wireless adapter card in my desktop: D-Link WDA-1320 Desktop Adapter. I used this card with XP and it works fine with Windows Seven.

I used a cheap PCI card as well, I think it was the D-Link WDA-1320 Desktop Adapter. Worked fine, had to take it out to make room for a sound card though.
