My Win 7 shows 2 network adapters in device manager...in my Acer ao 722 net book. My desktop has XP and only shows one adapter..I believe one of the adapters in the Acer net book is wireless ( being a new machine ) and the desktop is an older pc with a wired adapter. Could i copy the wireless adapter and paste it into my Desktop, to enable wireless connections? Obviously, we are not talking about actual cards, they are all integrated into the Motherboard.

Desktop computers don't usually come with wireless networking adapters built into the motherboards.

You will need to buy and install either a Wireless PCI card or USB adapter for the desktop.
