Hi, I want to buy TP Link TL-WN751ND wifi card. It has a 32 bit pci interface and I just wanted to know whether or not it would work in a pci x16 slot in my motherboard?

Thanks

The TP Link TL-WN751ND wifi card is for older PCI interface.

What you needed is a TP-Link TL-WN781ND 150Mbps Wireless PCI Express Adapter click here

Quoted: TL-WN781N Wireless Lite N PCI Express(x1) Adapter provides a wider compatibility, fitting with any standard PCI Express slot, x1, x4, x8, or x16.

Or

Put the TP Link TL-WN751ND wifi card in a spare PCI slot of your motherboard.
