    Good cheap wireless adapter.


    I have a desktop computer running windows 8 and now I want to be able to connect it to the internet. Anything special the adapter needs? I have TWC w/ 15mb download and 1mbps upload. I do not want to spend a lot of money on one.

    I bought two of these for my two desktop computers in the house to receive internet from my wireless router, they have been nothing but awesome, cheap and dependable.
