Hi everybody,
I would reuse a wireless card from my old laptop, the chip is the Intel ® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN.
I would use it in my new desktop computer.
My question is: can I do this? How can I connect it?

thanks to all

Usually they are integrated into the motherboard on laptops if i am not mistaken. Therefore you will not be able to reuse it. Besides, if you're getting rid of a laptop, odds are it is an old laptop and will only support wireless g most likely. We are going onto wireless ac now (still using wireless n but ac is being rolled out extremely slowly) and your wireless card will be very slow compared to what you could get for under £30 , maybe even cheaper if you shop around.

i knew that it wouldn't be easy, but if i'm not wrong, the chip has a PCIe* Mini connector. it can't fit into a common motherboard (GA-Z77-DS3H) ?
there're 2 cable connects to it, one could be the antenna, other could be a power supply, right?

P.S.: sorry for wrong english, 'm not very good at it
