Although I would almost always go for a PCI one with 5Ghz support we use the in the school TP-Link ones from Amazon and they work very well never any issues.

    In my laptop I have a Broadcomm AC Wifi adapter and that works really well one of the best in our house and is super quick when transferring files from my home server! What I would say though is upgrade the router when you get it but don't jump from for example version 1 to the latest version 6 update from 1 to 2 then to 3 and so on until you get to the latest version otherwise you can really mess the router up I found out the hard way and had to send it back.
    Hm, I may have to consider the 66U rather than the 68U - will see what the wallet says! But looks great, and thanks for the upgrading tip. Just checked and they all all support PPPoE as well so that's a relief (I'm on BT Infinity, unfortunately!)

    EDIT: Turns out I'm getting my petrol expenses back this month so the 68U is on the cards, yay! It will go along with this beauty: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/networ...35833-pdt.html
