So I think my wireless adapter is shit and has been giving me a poor, unstable connection. My phone's wifi is 30u/10d and when I used it as a tether my computer was also 30u/10d. If my adapter is the problem I'll need a new one.

Does anyone have recommendations of any good wireless adapters or usb dongles? I'd like it to be under $50 ideally around $30.

When I was building my computer, I was going to get the one that Roy linked, but it was out of stock or w/e, so I got this one:

I've had 0 problems with it and it's always connected, so if you can't get the Gigabyte one, this one is good, too.

You don't need to spend anywhere near that much:

You can get them as cheap as $2 + shipping, although a few people complain about the distance those ones work at. Depends what you need it for, you could go with a cheapie one and if it doesn't work, you're not out much.

Just here for the activity... well not really

I'm a little late but make sure you get one that supports dual-band (both 2.4 and 5 GHz). Some of the super cheap ones (like the one Lanthanide posted) don't, and it's a huge difference.
