Windows 7: Wifi question

Wifi question

Is it better to have PCI or USB? I know USB has 5 volts, but not sure about PCI. Basically I have an extended antennae that works on PCI, and trying to boost my quality for $20 or less. Its a PCI - G wireless card so I know I should get N but if I go cheaply and do USB I won't make use of my boosted antennae. Thoughts?

If you already have an antenna than go with the PCI which with that antenna will give a more reliable service and be easier to position for optimum signal if you have an extension cable for it then a USB. as far as power to the PCI have a look below

WiFi driver question
I have an Acer Aspire 1800 that I installed Windows 7 RC onto. I was completely impressed with the ease of the installation and how it seemed to find a driver for everything on my laptop. Well almost everything. Apparently the Os can't find a driver for my wifi and the manufacturer doesn't seem...
