Im looking for a solid wifi card that isnt to crazy priced.  I dont mind paying $50 or so if its a superior card, but im not to sure what the differences are between some of these $30 cards and $100+ cards.

what speed do you want? I would recommend b/g/n at least, but do you need the extra performance of wireless-AC?

Hmm... Thats basically a new wave of router technology right?  So it seems that if I dont want to have to buy a new card in the next few years id want to go with an AC now?  Is the cost a lot greater?

Here's the one I have. I have decided to stick with N technology for now. This one works great with Linux.
