I recently was in search of a wireless card myself and stumbled upon this card with a long usb extension cord. For the price you could have the Alfa card everyone prefers but i've found older netgear cards work or something dual band N600/750 which is more expensive but worth it. Havent tested it on multiple machines, but the machine it was tested on had onboard Broadcom that worked fine. Wouldn't recognize that one either. Sorry.
