Can I use notebook adapter on a desktop computer to connect to my wireless router ?Report
I have a Cisco-Linksys router, and I need to get an adapter for my desktop to connect to it wirelessly. Notebook adapters are $10–30 cheaper than desktop adapters, so do I have to use a desktop one or can I go the cheaper route? What are the benefits of a desktop adapter over a notebook one?
Well, what kind of adapter are you looking at? If it’s a PCMCIA, you probably don’t have the right port on your desktop. If it’s a USB adapter, you’ll be fine. I use one that I bought when I bought my desktop (I already planned on having a wireless network set up and decided to cut down on the wires) and I’ve never had any issues.
