Hey folks. Just a quick question. I'm building myself a new rig and have just discovered no internet outlet in the location I wish to put my computer, changing said location is not an option. However I do have a home internet network and was curious as to if there was a way to wirelessly connect via some sort of USB or somthing of the sort. I'll give you my motherboard just if you need it. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Thanks for any help

Edit: I was thinking about something like this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683...

Actually, (with my appologies) I can't remember it was a few years back, but I don't think so.

This card works great, and is better than a USB device. I would recommend that you get the newest drivers from the manufacturer's website once you get the drivers that come with it installed.

It is a PCIe x1 card so make sure you have that slot. Otherwise get one of these:

They both work well and have good quality chipsets. I own them both.

Thanks alot, I had looked into these. The motherboard just lists as having "PCI Slots" 2 of them. You can see with the motherboard I posted. Oh and by the way the PCI express you posted lists as PCI Express Revision 1.1?

yes those card are pci expres card

Yeh you have two PCIe slots so I would get the first one I posted. It's low profileand takes up less space in the case. Plus you can typically put it above your gfx card so it doesn't effect airflow

put it to the lower pci slot so it wont interfer with the audio output
