Default 802.11b/g PCI-E x1 card



Abit has developed a PCI-E wi-fi card for PCs.

Finally, there might actually be some development for the x1 and x4 slots on so many mobos.

Funny-looking WiFi card to me.

What's that extra gizmo at the end? A microphone?

It doesn't look very good, but yeah, at least you can use PCI-E for somethign.
