I think the one you removed was the modem. That should only matter if your using dial up. The tv tuner, you don't really need that unless your planning on watching tv on your computer. I suggest putting back in the modem card and taking out the tuner. In place of the tuner, put the linksys pci adapter there. Also make sure you install the software for that adapter.

I recently put a pc1 wifi card in my asus k8v-x motherboard the driver cd installed the software okay but now the wifi signal says disconnected and will not work


A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT YOU CAN TRY. MAKE SURE THAT YOU GOT THE LATEST DRIVER FOR THE WIFI CARD. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A CLEAR LINE OF SITE TO THE WIFI ROUTER. YOU MIGHT TRY A USB TO WIFI ADAPTER INSTEAD. YOU CAN PICK ONE UP AT MOST MAJOR STORES LIKE WAL-MART, OFFICE MAX, BEST BUY, ETC.

IF YOU FEEL LIKE THE PCI CARD IS WORKING OR THAT YOU TRIED A USB TO WIFI ADAPTER CONSIDER GETTING A RANGE EXTENDER TO GO BETWEEN THE COMPUTER AND THE ROUTER IF AND ONLY IF YOUR ROUTER IS IN A DIFFERENT BUILDING.

SOMETIMES THE SOFTWARE CAN PREVENT YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION LIKE FOR EXAMPLE A VIRUS. OR EVEN THE NETWORK IS CONFIGURED INCORRECTLY.

FIC FR33E motherboard?

Reference: Photo


To the far left side of the motherboard, is actually the Bottom of the motherboard, when installed in your computer case.

The two White long expansion slots you see, are PCI expansion slots.
If one is available, (Open), you can use a PCI USB adapter card.
This is but one example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4143850&CatId=511

Seem cheap? Nope. Good quality also. (You can also check the reviews)

Need guidance in installing?
1) Follow Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside the computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.

[Note* Always unplug the power to a computer AT the surge protector. NOT at the back of the computer. (Power Supply)
You can cause a power surge ]

2) TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

3) Finding an open PCI slot look at the back of the computer. In the metal frame you will see slots going horizontally.
These are Expansion Slots.

You may have an add-on adapter card already installed, in one of the PCI slots.
The expansion slot cover for it is removed.

You should see expansion slot covers however, in the remaining expansion slots on the back of the computer metal framework.
Remove the one that corresponds with the PCI slot you wish to use.

Be aware that the PCI slot will not be directly in line, with the expansion slot.
When installing an add-on adapter card, you will see when the card is inserted in the PCI slot, the metal bracket on the add-on card, lines up with an adjacent expansion slot.

This will make more sense to you once you go to install the card.

[PCI USB adapter card is an add-on adapter card ]

Line the card up in the PCI slot. Note that there is a Locating Lug in the PCI slot, and a matching Locating Notch, on the PCI USB adapter card.

Also, at the same time line up the metal bracket of the PCI USB adapter card, with the metal framework of the computer case at the back.

Gently push the PCI USB adapter card down into the PCI slot.
Fasten the card's metal bracket to the computer's metal framework.

Post the computer manufacturer name, and model number, if you need guidance in opening the computer case. Post in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I am currently using a wireless 'dongle' to connect to the internet but I feel that it would probably give me a more stable connection if I had a wireless card. Can anyone give me details of


Hi Lynda,
The best option for you would be to purchase a wireless PCI network card.
They are relatively inexpensive and should have a stronger signal over a longer distance than a wireless USB dongle.
Below is a typical wireless network card and it should be freely available from your local PC store


1_24_2012_10_00_56_pm.jpg
I have included a brief explanation for your convenience:

A PCI wireless adapter card connects to a desktop computer's PCI bus. Because the PCI bus is contained inside the computer, the unit must be opened and the wireless network adapter installed inside.
An example of a PCI wireless adapter card, the Linksys WMP54G is shown above. This unit is more than 8 inches (200 mm) long in order to accommodate the standard connection strip required to electrically join to the bus. The unit attaches and fits snugly inside the PCI, although the wireless adapter card antenna protrudes out the back of the computer

Best wishes,

What is the advantage of PCIe expansion bus and how willl it contribute to providing a solution at the internet cafe?


A PCI expansion bus is a slot in your computer, a place where yo can plug in a electonic device. There are several different kinds of slots in most desktop or tower style computers, PCI is one of them. PCI slots will accomodate a variety of expansion devices, a modem or Network interface card for example.

How a PCI clot will interface with the rest of your question is a mystery to me. What is the problem at the internet cafe??? I would expect most folks would use a laptop computer at a internet cafe ... laptops do not have PCI slots. The Cafe may have a tower with PCI slots and they may have an issue that could be addressed by an expansion card installed using the PCI card.

If you can ask your question or present your situation, I and other volunteer workers here would be glad to have a look at it.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

MY PACKARD BELL PIV HAS N1996 MOTHER BOARD I cant see any display on my screen when i turn on my computer. But it looks it has read all the information from harddisk and loaded the operating system. but on screen i cant see any raster i.e. display.


First At this time u observe one thing check the Numlock Status if it is ON/OFF (Glow ) in Keyboard when u pressing the  Numlock key, the system is giving display check with pci vga card.

If not check with another Ram module.

If it is also not problem u clear the CMOS once and check it

It looks like your trying to install a PCI Graphics Adapter. If that is the case, I would try the PCI Graphics Adapter any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2. That is unless, your PCI Graphics Adapter Card is a PCI Express, then that must be installed in Slot 1, if the Board supports it. If the PCI Graphics Adapter is a PCI-I Card then it must be installed in Slot 2.

Check AMD's site, they have or already implemented standards on their support chips. The standard, as I understand it, is Slot 1 - PCI Express, Slot 2 - PCI-I, if you're using those Slot for PCI Graphics Adapter.

It should be possible to use those Slots (1 & 2) for any PCI Cards that is not a PCI Graphics Adapter, be careful, I have not checked that out. Those do not handshake as Video Adapter, so the PCI card should not be thrown or overdriven, the PCI-Express and PCI-I, to my knowledge is only for Grahpics Adapters, should that be different, then Slot 1 for only PCI Express Cards and Slot 2 for only PCI-I Cards.

Me, for now, Slot 1 for Express, Slot 2 for PCI-I, and the rest of the Slot for all else. If your PCI Graphics Adapter is not an Express or PCI-I, install in any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2.
