    When I move to the new place I will need a network card in the desktop, to suit the TP-Link WD-9980 router. I am looking at the following items:

    1   –   https://tinyurl.com/wysgabc    £52.53

    2  –  https://tinyurl.com/vhoyspg      £39.99

    3  –  https://tinyurl.com/uwecflz        £24.99 (Limited time offer)

    I am fairly convinced that No. 3 will give me what I want to setup and connect in Win10 64 bit: what does The Team think? All advice respected with thanks.

    The router is N only so no need to worry about AC, I’d go with #3.

    The card I’ve been using lately is this one Gigabyte GC-WB1733D-I it’s on Amazon for the same price. I like the external antenna and it has Bluetooth too.

    EDIT – the card has a power connector but it’s only needed for Bluetooth.

    Thanks Dave, No. 3 it is, I’ll order in a few minutes.

    Not fussed about Bluetooth, but that Gigabyte card looks good.
