Improve your desktop connectivity experience using Intel® wireless adapters. They are available in a selection of form factors that fit servers, desktops and laptops, and include products that support Bluetooth® connections. Build unified connectivity options for the office with wireless products from Intel.
The M.2 interface on some Intel wireless adapters allows adding more connectivity options to micro PC, mini PC and thin client builds. PCIe® wireless adapters easily fit in the free corresponding slots on select desktop or server motherboards. Provide an older laptop with the same built-in wireless functionality as newer models using adapters with the mini PCIe interface. Microsoft® Windows® 10 operating system offers full support, requiring no additional drivers or software when installing an Intel Wi-Fi® network adaptor.
Wireless network adapters send data via radio waves to routers that pass it along to broadband modems or internal networks without using wires. The 2.4GHz band on some network adapters allows your desktop devices to receive a Wi-Fi signal, even through walls and floors. Dual-band Intel models use 2.4 and 5GHz frequencies to provide a stable connection in areas with interference. Some devices allow selecting the band, so you can decide between speed or range to suit your requirements. Some Intel modules are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ 6, so you can download large files faster. Many Intel wireless adapters support Wi-Fi MIRACAST® for streaming videos, games and photos on a large HD screen without wires. Intel wireless desktop kits comprise a module, antennas, brackets and cables that allow for fast installation. Some options have flexible external antennas that allow adjusting the PC wireless adapter for a better Wi-Fi connection.
Most Intel wireless adapters are compatible with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards for consistent performance when using your current Wi-Fi routers and modems. Select models allow using wireless accessories such as high-gain detachable antennas to increase network coverage range. Support for antenna diversity allows an Intel wireless AC adapter with multiple antennas to choose the ideal one for a robust connection. Downlink multi-user, multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO) technology allows adapters to transmit data to several clients, which helps increase data transfer speed without congestion.
An Intel Bluetooth adapter provides convenient pairing with compatible audio devices, such as headsets, speakers and receivers for stereo systems. Use Bluetooth adapters in two desktops to send and receive files wirelessly, just as you could by connecting to a smartphone. Intel wireless adapters with Bluetooth 5.0 allow communicating with devices up to 800ft away, offering freedom of movement when using compatible keyboards and mice.
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) protocol in wireless adapters is backward compatible with legacy devices and systems for a seamless, secure connection. Support for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Wi-Fi Protected Access III (WPA3™) security protocol in select Intel wireless adapters allows users to choose natural, easy-to-remember passwords. Create a personal Wi-Fi network for direct communication using integrated Wi-Fi Direct™ technology.
