Wifi? Tags: WiFi Components Last response: February 25, 2013 2:24 PM in Components Share TheNewPCGuy February 24, 2013 1:22:43 PM My components are all being shipped for my first build, but how do I get a wifi connection? I've heard about wireless USB things? Do I need a specific USB adapter for my motherboard or?

If you decide on an internal wireless card, all you need to check is that the new motherboard has a spare PCI or PCIe slot. Then buy a PCI or PCIe wireless card as appropriate. If you decide on an external wireless adapter, all you need is a spare USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 slot. However, wherever possible it's always preferable to use a wired connection to the router if it's close enough to your PC, because it's more reliable, faster, and less hassle than wireless.
