Title: desktop wireless card for P10
Post by: cfx795 on August 14, 2019, 05:54:28 pm
I'm looking for advice with regards to a wireless card for my desktop computer. I was eyeing this card:

I'm running Peppermint 10. I'm only broadcasting across the room at the moment, nothing special. Thx.

Probably okay, but anything with an "Amazon's Choice" tag on it sets off alarms for me: https://is.gd/YvtVJ4

Happy hunting, and be safe out there...  :)

I'd be fairly confident it'll work, the comments seem to suggest it works out-of-the-box with no additional drivers required in Ubuntu and therefore Peppermint :)

You were right. Snapped it in the PCIE slot, one screw, powered on the computer, and entered the password. That was it. Works fine.
