Scott, how effective are wireless adapters that utilize USB ports compared with those that utilize PCI slots?

For adding wireless networking to desktop systems I recommend USB wireless network adapters over those using PCI slots. There are several reasons:

  • Installation - You don't need to open the system to install a USB device.
  • Portability - You can easily use the USB device with any other PC.
  • Signal - You can more easily achieve optimal antenna placement with a USB device.

Scott.
