How do I check if a motherboard has wireless

  Sapins 09:06 15 Aug 2010


I have a Foxconn 865A01G/PE motherboard and I want to move the desktop, which is connected to a router with an Ethernet connection, to the other side of the room where I will have to connect it wirelessly. I am also getting a new desktop which I will use in place of present desktop and connect it to the router by an Ethernet cable. If there is no wireless connection on the motherboard what do I need to connect wirelessly?

Device manager shows, in network adapters - 1394 net adapter and Intel(R) PRO/1000CT network connection.

There's no wireless - in fact I've never seen wireless on a desktop board (though I suppose it's not impossible.)

You need a PCI wireless card (or a USB wireless dongle), examples -

1394 - Firewire

Intel(R) PRO/1000CT - LAN/Ethernet connection.

Many thanks for that, just what I need,
