Question about Computers & Internet
I am slowly but surely going MAD, I have a DELL OPTIPLEX GX110 (1997) yes, that old, P3, 733Mhz, 256ram.
My question is I am going to make it a WIRELESS PC using a DYNAMODE pci wireless lan adapter model WL GI 600XA.
I am concerned with the age of pc that the PCI card will not be compatable as I beleive the PCI card is "V2.2" and possibly the motherboard in the pc is "V2.1" but I am not sure.
Will this make any difference ? V2.1 ... V2.2 ???
The more I look on the net I get further away from finding any answer.......
Any advice would be very gratefully received.
THANK YOU ... Peter.
To my knowledge it will still work. Most hardware compatibility issue has been addressed by the manufacturers when it comes with motherboards, meaning the PCI wireless LAn will auto-downshift itself to conform to whatever the motherboard PCI slots are capable of dishing out. Based on experience, comparable brands/models (LinkSys, NetGear & D-Link) have worked with Socket 370 motherboards (PIIIs & Celerons) as well as Socket 472 (Durons & Athlons).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
