wireless network cards for desktop PC

  logoff 16:28 10 Sep 2013

My son is buying a desktop PC and, due to difficulty in getting an ethernet cable into his room, we need to get a network card added to ensure can connect to broadband (we are with O2) this way. His system is likely to be an i5 with Windows 7, probably 64 bit. Is there any best buys or, more importantly, types of card to avoid? Have never had to buy one of these before so don't know much about them, Thanks in advance

Had several brands and found they all worked roughly the same. They nearly all have the same chips in anyway.
