Need help with wireless adapter

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've recently sold my ATX build to build a micro atx build. I'm using this mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157306

The pcie slot is below the graphics card and my 670 blocks the metal bracket for my WiFi adapter. Is there anything I could do? Would USB be a good alternative? I use this PC to play BF3 alot

Yeah, just don't get the cheap ones--you get what you pay for. tongue.gif Get something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122490

You could also just use a wired connection. With a wired connection there's no lag and you get your full speeds. Good luck. smile.gif

Why can't you just put it in the last PCIe slot?

I'm referring to your wireless adapter. Put it in the last PCIe slot.

Does it fit? I didn't think it would fit since its the same size as the PCI x1 and not the PCI express 2.0 16 slot

Edit : Thank You,you learn something new everyday. It works
