Makeshift wireless card...

Recommended Posts

Hi, my desktop needs some kind of wireless adapter to use for a couple weeks.

 

I have a laptop with a pcie wireless b/g/n so I want to make use of it.

 

I'm at work right now (hehe) so I can't test it out, but will this card work without the black and white antenna wires that are attached on the laptop? Or will the signal be super crappy?

I doubt you can do that. The pci-e for your laptop is mini pci-e and that will not work in a desktop unless you buy an adapter board.

 

You can just go to your local hardware shop and buy a USB dongle for <$20.
