Need recommendation for wireless network adapter

I have internet and the router, now I just need something to wirelessly connect to it. What would you recommend? Also, the motherboard I'm getting has an onboard Ethernet. I'm new to this, so I'm not sure what it is.

are you in the us or uk? i left this comment for someone in the uk with the same question:

i am going to buy the 49€ Asus PCE-AC56. it is a 802.11a/b/g/n/ac PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter and im prettty shure thats all you can ask for. there is a more expensive 74€ Asus PCE-AC68, it has faster speeds (but who has a router that can support 1000+ mbs anyway). if these are too expensive for you there is the Rosewill N900PCE which is not in the uk.. crap. or the Rosewill N600PCE which is not in the uk either. here is a 19€ TP-Link TL-WDN3800 that is in the uk. keep in mind the roswell/tp link ones are cheap, witch means theat they are not as strong and have a higher chance of not working. but judging from the reviews they are still amazing cards, just depends on you budget.

If your router is close to your computer, then use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router using the onboard Ethernet port you mentioned. If you want it to be connected wirelessly, you have two options and both are really cheap:
1. Get a PCI card like I did and plug it to your motherboard. Now you have a setup similar to a laptop. ASUS PCE-N10
2. Buy a USB wireless adapter ($10-$30)
