what wireless LAN PCI card can be installed in Optiplex 755 minitower

This question is answered

I am wanting to move an existing wireless LAN PCI 802.11 b/g adapter WN5301A card from another tower computer into my Optiplex 755 mintower.  Is this compatible, or do I need to get a different wireless card?  Thanks for your help.

    The motherboard of Optiplex 755 mintower has 2 PCI slots. As shown in the picture below:

    Wireless LAN PCI 802.11 b/g adapter WN5301A card is compatible on your computer provided if there are any free PCI slots.

  • Thank you very much Madhur B for your quick response and complete answer.  This will help me get an Optiplex set up to replace an even older desktop tower that I must retire.
