t9e archer installation

It will fit and work in any PCIE slot without consequence.

 

Although you might want to avoid putting in a slot that shares lanes with your graphics card's slot. That will cause the GPU's slot to lose half its max speed.

how to tell if its shared or not?

Your motherboard manual and specs on its webpage will state any PCIE slots that share lanes.

 

I could look it up for you, if you can tell me exactly what model of motherboard you have (provided it is not some garbage OEM motherboard with nonexistent documentation)

 

You either know it or you don't. Only very specialized software (none of which I know of) can detect and tell you what model of mobo is being used.

 

A sure fire way to find out is to open the case and look a the model number printed on the board itself.

Both of those mobos don't have PCIE slots that share lanes. As long as your graphics card is on the top slot, it won't be affected by your wifi card installed in any available slot.

thank you very much,

it seems i have a smaller pci-e lanes compared to the one with graphic card.

which of the lanes are faster? smaller pcie or the long pcie?
