There really aren't all that many options for this out there. Newegg has one: the Silverstone ECWA2-Lite. It uses simple pass-through connectors to your computer's PCIe slot and internal USB header, so it runs at full speed, needs no additional drivers, and should be compatible with any mini-PCIe card. It's only got two antennas, though.

  • Also, the quality will be about the same from most adapters like this. Since there isn't much demand, nearly all the distributors use the same OEMs.
