Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Belkin Wireless 802.11B PCI Adapter Revi - Belkin Wireless 802.11B PCI Adapter Revi
Sun, March 03 2002 | 3:15PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"This first thing you should know is that this Desktop Wireless PCI Network Adapter comes in two pieces, the PCI Adapter and the Network card itself. I was a bit perplexed as to why this was, but it soon became clear to me why almost all manufacturers (not just Belkin) are doing this. The reason is that the Network Card itself is a PCMCIA device that is meant to be used in notebooks/laptops where wireless technology would have the most benefit for roaming users. Desktop computers need the PCI Adapter to use the Wireless Network card. The PCI Adapter is installed into your computer, and the Wireless Network card simply plugs into that."
