What can I add to my PC to give it wireless capabilities?   I would like to be able to use a wireless printer from it or download photos from my camera with the use of a wifi sd card.  Thanks for any information.

You need a Wireless card in one of your PCI slots in your PC.

 

Here is one for an example

Thanks for the reply.  Do they all typically have the antennas?

 

Is something like this as good?

I've never tried one like that, but in my experience of using a wireless adapter the ones I've had, have used antennas. Although I'm sure you could find some without.

Thanks again.  I'll look into the one suggested by you and make sure it fits my mobo.

Bill, I put http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833315091 this one into my PC in December. I needed it for the Googlecast. It's been working great.

Thanks for the info.  Maybe I should try that route first.
