    I have bought an Intel dual band wireless ac 7260hmw. I was under the impression your just needed a pcie slot in the motherboard but when i tried to insert it , it doesnt fit. I now am led to believe i need other hardware to install this hardware. Is this true? Thank you for any help!

    Yea so my card is micro express half height. My pc is also a desktop pc so its the main one in my household. After some researching i am under the impression i need a pci adapter where i can insert a micro half height, then connect that adapter to a normal pci slot on the motherboard; is that correct? And if so does that wireless pci adapter have to be an intel like my half height ?
