To make this simple, I have this mobo:

Under normal circumstances, I don't use a wireless card with my computer. I plug directly into the router. I'm going to be staying with some friends for a couple of weeks where I won't be able to do this. So I thought I'd get a simple wireless card for the time being. Nothing fancy, just something that works enough for me to web browser and chat online.

So I found this.

When I looked at the interface, it says it's PCI2.2. Looking at my motherboard, I'm not sure if I can use any of those slots. I thought the PCI2 might work, but I wanted to be sure before I purchased.

Thanks for any help!

Yes you have them, PCI slots on your board are 2.2 the 2.2 standard is from around 1997 and newer.

But a USB receiver may be a simpler answer> https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833130111
