The Rampage IV Extreme doesn't have the mPCI-E combo card that the Maximus V series has. In fact, it also lacks a standard mPCI-E slot. Therefore, your options are either to buy a PCI-E wi-fi card or to use a USB wi-fi adapter. Personally I would recommend a high quality USB wi-fi adapter so you don't have to use up a PCI-E slot.

I've heard some pretty good things about this model. Keep in mind when using a wireless adapter that your position relative to you router as well as the quality of your router will greatly performance you see on your end of the connection.

Ok, i will give that a look, i saw something cheaper from D-Link and only suport up to 150Mbps, wasn't thinking about fastest as my net speed is not reaching 100mbps yet and i will not have that service for long time as it is very very crazy expensive here.
