All my existing open PCI slots have only one notch, but all the wireless cards that i found have 2 notches.
Are there any wireless adpaters that can fit into PCI slots with one notch?
Is there a way to upload an image with Q?
By the way, I don't know the manufacturer of my motherboard as it is a Dell XPS 630 desktop. I randomly choose the sub-category in order to submit this Q.

rolli59: My current open black color PCI slot is much longer than the Rosewill RNX-N150PCe (RNWD-11011) IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCIe 2.0 Wireless Adapter you listed. That Rosewill wireless adapter has much shorter pins with one notch than my open black color PCI slot.

Sounds like you have a std PCI slot then the second link card should work Unless it is a PCIe X16 slot like the graphics card is in or an X4 slot which would be about half the length. X1 card would work in either slot.
