(N900 450 mbps dual band pci express)Could anyone tell me if this adapter will fit in to a slot on Dell dimension 9200 its over 5 years old and slots dont seem right size for adapter. Thank you for any help.
It also says PCI- EXPRESS X 1 BUT 0 available
Also the PCI-Express x16 total 1
It also says none available.
What is likely to be in PCI-Express x 1 could it be something to do with networking/wireless? Just wondering if it could be taken out and replaced with adapter. The desktop is wired but I want to move it to another location and use it by wi fi.
You have a Nvidia Geforce 7900GS in the PCI-Express x16 slot, a TV tuner card in PCI-Express x1 slot as well as a sound card in a PCI slot.
You'll have a few options here:
(1).If you don't use the TV tuner card, take it out & replace it with the N900 450 mbps dual band pci express.
(2).The motherboard spec menu doesn't mention a PCI-Express x4 available but please investigate & see if there is one present( a brown medium length slot situated underneath the graphic card), you can put the wireless card in there too.(you may find the wireless card doesn't take up the whole slot but it'll still work)
(3).Return the N900 450 mbps dual band pci express ,get a PCI card instead & put it in one of the spare PCI slots.
(4).Replace the N900 450 mbps dual band pci express with a USB version.
