Default Need a good wireless adapter!

Any advice on a good wireless adapter, for gaming (BF3 and such). Got a new mobo (ASUS maximus iv extreme-z) and then realized my old PCI wireless adapter doesnt fit in the PCI-E slots of the mobo...

I'm good with either USB or PCI-E adapters, whichever one makes more sense, but would probably prefer a USB adapter. our router is around 25 ft away and through 1 wall, if that makes any difference.

thanks!

I've used a couple USB adapters and the one that I found the most reliable/best is the Linksys AE1000

Use powerline, not wireless for gaming.
