Hey guys, i bought a pci wireless and bluetooth adapter. It goes in a pci x4 slot. My mobo only has an x1 slot. Can i put it in an x8? Or is there an adapter I can buy? If such an adapter exists it would be preferable to be an x1 to x4. I found what looks like a pci x8 to an some kind of omni pci slot.
But if I could stick the thing in the x8 that would be great.Would there be any bandwidth issues from pci x1 to x4?

My motherboard:

ASrock B85 pro4

THere can be issue with some cards so it is maybe it works and maybe not.
It works but how good. It is totally difrent story.

What wi-fi card is it?

You can try it in pci-e1 slot or pci-e4 or pci-e 8. Then if it do not work properly in that slot where you did put it in. Then we can try find fix what to do next :)

Turns out it's a mini pci. no loss at $9 and plenty of use in my laptop though.
