    Hello

    As in the subject, I am looking for a good network card for my computer with a wifi antenna. I would like it to provide me with pretty good comfort during the game (stable fps with comfortable ping

    I struggled with the wifi network card (no matter what, with each problem will be) just by two walls in a distance similar to yours and advise, periodically will ping, but from time to time you will have a wave of pingu> 300 ms and you will only get mad. If you have the option, buy a twisted pair and forget about the problem.

    Well, but the problem is that I do not have the cable to run too much, because both rooms share a bathroom, and I will not run a cable around the bathroom because it would be on the outside: /

    I have one question. Do you have a smartphone eg on android or iOS (iphone)?
    We could check the signal level in this room where the computer with a wifi network card should stand.

    The android app for signal strength measurement is called Wifi Analyzer

    I installed the application as you recommended. When I put my phone where it should be, the antenna shows me the power at -65 / -70 [dBm]

    It's good. For speeds up to 20Mbps, you can even buy a b / g card and buy it. Any budget?

    In total, I did not want to spend too much on this card, I think that up to 60-80 PLN max. For half a year I intend to increase the internet speed to 150-200mb, so when choosing, I have to suggest support for such speeds, although I will not download anything there, I care more about constant ping and low lag in games

    But I would like to buy something on pci-e and what is AC?

    Much faster WiFi standard in the 5 GHz band. AC cards for PCI-E are more expensive, and you write about 150Mbps which on your offer will be impossible to achieve. But if you want to take it, you will not be fooled.

    And what is your recommendation for 5gz standard pci?

    E.g. Asus PCE-AC55.
    In my opinion, it is good when the card has a ready panel with antennas on the cables so that you can drag them from behind your desk.
    No cards without MIMO - they cope less with reflected signals and are more sensitive to signal fades.

    Not this budget.
    PCE-AC51 is also good at Allegro from PLN 115. But still a little above.

    Either the colleague wants performance or breaking up. With the crowded 2.4GHz band, it will be difficult to draw the appropriate parameters for playing or watching TV. N 5GHz do not make sense, because AC are not that much more expensive (at least 2x2, because 3x3 card prices can already be cosmic), and have higher bandwidth and beamforming, which can noticeably raise the signal.
    As Asus is too expensive, maybe Chinese people have something interesting.
    And the problem is presented like this:
    I am looking for a car that would drive like BMW but I have the budget for Skoda Fabia.
    Then a desperate thread will be created:
    Help me, I have Fabia and any luj in Golf leaves me at the lights!

    I gave the above card with AC without MIMO which is in the budget, and I think that is enough. But what ultimately will be purchased depends on the author of the topic.

    5GHz on two walls is a bad idea. Maybe you would be interested in PLC?
  • Network and Internet Specialist
    PLC - the idea is good, only the author wants to raise the speed to 200 Mb and that on a low-cost set he will not get, he has to spend 500 PLN on the PLC.
