Wireless PCI Card vs Wireless Bridge?

I'm having trouble finding a good Wireless PCI Card that works with Windows 7 x64 and Vista x64.

"I purchased a wireless bridge for my desktop instead of a PCI card, since the cards weren't working well with Vista and Windows 7 (at least the ones I tried.) I have been extremely happy with the wireless bridge and haven't looked back since.

A wireless bridge is definitely the way to go for connecting a desktop to WiFi. Also, you can connect it to your XBox 360 or other networked devices too!"

The easiest way is if you have more than one computer. If you have a laptop that is usually stationary, then you can plug an ethernet cable into the laptop, run it to the desktop, and share your wireless connection via your Network Setup Wizard & ICS. Nothing to buy or install, but immobilizes your laptop while you are using the desktop. I like to use my old laptop with an upgraded wireless adapter for this. In any case, its a useful and easy temporary solution.
