I bought a new desktop computer and my old one will be used in the living room. It is not very practical to lay a network cable through the living room to the desktop, so I was starting to think about how to make it wireless.
Beside the explicit solutions, like buying a network card with antenna, I was wondering if my broken laptop could help. The laptop has a functioning wireless adapter inside and I want to know (before tearing apart the laptop) if I could plug that somewhere in my desktop.
- What type of connector would a wireless adapter have?
- Is it even possible to get the adapter out of the laptop?
- What steps to take to build it into my desktop?
