Which wireless adapter to choose?

Hello, i wan to but a new wireless adapter because my belkin sucks. I found these:
Edimax WLAN nLite High Gain USB Adapter (4710700926352) | eBay
Cisco-Linksys WUSB100 Wireless Network USB Adapter | eBay
Which one shall I buy? Have you got a different favourite? I like the edimax one very much because it's a high gain wireless adapter

ultimate 64 sp1

the usual advice is to buy an adapter of the same make as your router to maximise compatibility.

saying that, any high quality adapter should work with any router flawlessly.

the edimax looks to be the superior of the two, and should get a stronger signal, which will mean faster speeds and a wider range.
