It firstly depends on what Distribution you have installed on the Pi, but the recommended Raspbian has good support for various USB WiFi Adaptors:

I use this one. It works very well, speeds are fine, I can't vouch for range because I have a router within 2 metres of it but importantly it's pretty low power too.

If range is important, you can get some with huge antennas attached, like this:
