The optiplex 960 can have WiFi builtin. Under the hood its just a card but the way you connect it isn't with all the other expansion slots, but below the heatsink. The slot is right there all by itself.
On the bottom of the case right below the slot on the motherboard, is a hole. So when you plug the special card in, part of it goes into this hole in the case I guess for the antenna to work right, and the other part goes into the slot on the motherboard.
I'm asking if I take off the bracket off my card that I want to plug into this motherboard, can I use this special WiFi slot for dell's special internal WiFi card? Because the regular pci-e slot for general purposes is already being used by something. Or will it burn or kill the board?
Like this slot looks just to be a generic PCI-E slot, its just for dell's special purposes. Can someone look up the docs on this PC or does someone know that I for sure won't blow up my Dell if I plug another card in that fits perfectly?
