Default wl-130g PCI wireless card

One question.

I do not need the wireless card supplied with my A8V.

My friend wants to have it. Does this card work in a PC without a Asus
motherboard?

If this is the one that goes into the special asus slot then the answer is
no..
You could probably sell it on ebay.

And what is the special asus slot? It is a normal PCI card. In the manual it
says remove the bracket on the pci slot you INTEND to use. It says nothing
about put it in slot 1 2 or three.

It is not a small AMR or what card, normal PCI

On certain ASUS motherboards, there is a AMR-like interface, which is
used along with a specific ASUS brand card/external antenna, permitting
you to not only access a WiFi network, but act as an AP for others.

You can't use it in other motherboards, and you can't use PCI slot 5 on
the motherboards that have it if you are using the proprietary card.

There is a picture here. It looks like a PCI edge card.

Uses one of the Ralinktech chipsets. The MAC chip RT2560F has
PCI and Cardbus options.

Slap it into a PCI slot and try it.

I'd say give it to ur pal and let him try it then..
I dont know any of their version numbers.. but if it goes into a pci slot
(and if you can use any slot) then I would assue (bad thing sometimes) that
it's safe to go into any slot, granted it might not work, but it shoudl be
safe.
