Wireless card for Optiplex AIO 7470

Hello community,

I just bought an Optiplex AIO 7470 from the outlet store and it did not come with an installed wireless card.

I wonder if anyone can tell me the Dell part number to order the correct wireless card?   I just want to make sure I buy something that is compatible with the system.

Thank you.

Wayne

This is plug and play.  It just works.

@WayneFB  Dell sells a variety of adapters. Have a look:

Some are pricey, some quite reasonable, but you'll have to decide what meets your needs.

Thanks for the quick reply. I should have been more specific. The person for whom I'm buying has specified that he wants an internal card. I think there may be an issue with the number of available USB ports (there's only 5 of the old variety).

I know that if you order a new Optiplex 7470 you can choose between two wireless cards, so presumably they have a Dell P/N. I'm in Australia and Dell doesn't sell USB adapters, but if it does come to that I know where to get one.

If there's no joy on a Dell P/N for a wireless card does anyone know whether a stock standard Intel card such as the one linked to below would work?
