Solved Can I fit a PCI WLAN card to a desktop that has only PCIe 2.0 slots? Tags: Connectivity Desktops PCI WLAN Wireless Networking Product Last response: June 12, 2011 10:52 AM in Wireless Networking Share epnina June 4, 2011 9:26:59 AM Hi, when I browse for internal WLAN cards for my new desktop their interface is described as "PCI 32 bit", which is weird because expension slots on new desktop mobos are all PCIexpress. I know the PCIexpress's interface is physiclly different then PCI's, and that it carries 64 bits. So, will that work? why are those produts out there then, like Edimax's ( http://www.edimax.com/en/support_detail.php?pd_id=344&p... ) as an example? Do you know internal cards that with PCIexpress interface?
