Hmm.  I've been a network manager for over 20 years, supporting tens of 
thousands of staff and students at a university where there's a lot of 
gaming activity and I've never heard the term gaming adapter before.

The term could mean many things...

The first few hits I get refer to a USB device to connect to a console 
to give it WiFi capability.  That's not what Charles described, and what 
you referred to, which is a network bridge.
