 Why not check out and go from there?

I need to buy another wireless card from them but this one will install 
in the computer since all cards they have available on the 5.0 band 
rather than the 2.4 band are internal pci cards.  I have an realtek usb 
adapter I think 8192 but it only runs on the 2.4 band and the 2.4 band 
is going away for internet communications in the United States in the 
not too distant future as a result of an F.C.C. decision.
