I'm looking for the best possible Wireless network adapter for under $100. PCI or USB, both will work. I am on my second story, while the router is in the basement. I can usually get a good connection with what I have, but the drivers are buggy and I lose my connection and am forced to restart a lot. I even get some BSOD's while downloading or uploading.  

Right now I have a Linksys WUSB54G v2 and am not happy with it. I would prefer a non-linksys adapter, but if it's the best, I'll try it.

Also it would be awesome if the company had a 64 bit driver in development, or a beta release would be even better.

Thanks a lot.

I own, and recommend to my customers, Orinoco (now Proxim) client adapters. They make PCMCIA, PCI and USB models. In my experience, they are all excellent in my experience. Never had a major problem with one. Much better receive sensitivity than most other cards, except the Ciscos, and at a fraction of the price. IF you need to push a signal, better to use an external antenna than a high-powered card.
