    Win8 desktop > wireless network


    I would like to connect my desktop, running Windows 8x64 Pro, to a wireless network. Newegg shows several different different options, so I thought I'd ask here for advice/suggestions. TIA

    Specs, if needed:
    ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 Motherboard
    Corsair Professional Series Gold AX750 Power Supply
    CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB Memory
    Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic Case
    EVGA 01G-P3-1460-KR GeForce GTX 560 Video Card
    Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge 3.5GHz CPU
    4 - OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD
    1 - OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD
    Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVDrw Burner

    I have had the best results using Netgear dual band router and dual band adapter.
