I am planning to buy Asus p9x79 deluxe motherboard, i just wanted to know the uses of Wifi or wifi antenna which comes with it, are there any uses of it when internet is connected through direct ethernet, please reply. thanks
The board has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities with the antenna connected. If you are connected to Ethernet, it will still connect wirelessly (wifi) to your internet router if it is the wireless type, but there really is no benefit. The system will select the fastest of the connections, which will normally be the Ethernet.
but the board specifications say that it is Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with wi-fi AP router utility, does that mean that it can used as wi-fi hotspot, to use system ethernet internet as hotspot for other wi-fi devices like smartphones, laptops and use systems internet in devices. thanks in advance
