Yes, you can. Each of the adapter will be detected as different type but same function. You could use more then one network adapter, wired or wireless in single computer.

Does the asus cm5571 have wireless capabilities


Hi there
According to this webpage which gives the specs for the Asus, it does not have wireless capability built in
http://www.cnet.com/uk/products/asus-essentio-cm5571-br003/specs/
It can easily be used with a wireless network connection either by adding a wireless network PCI adaptor, or a USB wireless network adaptor. Neither of these are expensive and the USB adaptor is often preferred as it only needs a spare USB port on the machine and the computer does not need to be opened up as it does for the PCI adaptor.
Hope this helps

Add wireless card to gateway sx2800-01


You add the printer to the router not the PC. Go to the manufacturers website for installation instructions. or follow the instructions on the disc. Set up is usually done with a wired connection anyway. But to make your tower wireless it is easier to add a wireless USB adaptor.

How to make dell 4600 wireless


well an easy way to do this would be to buy a cheap usb wifi adaptor such as this: http://www.amazon.com/USB-Wireless-Lan-Adapter-150Mbps/dp/B002XGDU9M/ref=sr_1_10?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1346834082&sr=1-10&keywords=usb+wifi

or a bit more reliable solution would be a wireless card such as this: http://www.amazon.com/802-11g-Wireless-WIFI-Adapter-Desktop/dp/B003OBHE60/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1346834141&sr=1-4&keywords=wireless+card but I do not recommend doing this yourself unless you know what you are doing.

I have a compaq SR1330 and I was wondering what it would take to make it operate on a wireless connection?


All you require is either a wireless USB adaptor or wireless card.

Nothing else if you already have a wireless router.

ven many of the real cheap USB wireless adaptors are just fine for this type of thing

But if the computer is quite a way from the router then a better quality one with a proper antenna would be preferable.

I have a TP link wireless adaptor for an acer aspire T180 pc. I can't work out where to fit it on the motherboard


Providing the wireless adaptor is a PCI card this fits the white slot on motherboard.
Should it be USB, then plugs in the USB port.
