I need a PCI wireless card for my computer, and I'd be interested in your opinions as to which are the best ones and play nice with random wireless routers (i.e., in this situation, I can't buy a card and a router made by the same company to ensure that it will play nice). I also need it to have Vista 64 drivers, and I'd like it to be 802.11n-equipped.

Thoughts?

N is still not a standard so i would be wary of buying it atm

That being said there are a lot of very good wireless -n routers, that if you are looking to do streaming can handle it at a better capacity than g routers.

Look for ones that operate on dual band. I've always had good look with Linksys products, but expect everyone to chirp in with their preference.

I've never experienced any problems with the n-standard, not on the 64-bit Vista Ultimate on the HDX either.

802.11g/n debates aside, anyone have any wireless PCI cards that they know work in Vista 64?

belkin sucks balls, no matter what OS you use it with, avoid it like the plague, linksys or netgear are better options, i have always had linksys and never had any issues with them
