A small adapter ships with the GeForce 8200-ITX giving users the ability to incorporate 802.11 b/g. While it is not as good as having an integrated adapter, it is more elegant than a USB wireless adapter hanging out the back. It also leaves the PCI-E slot free, giving users more versatile expansion options.

There is a space between the audio and USB ports for the WiFi module. It mounts to the board via two screws. Since installation requires access to the back of the motherboard, it should be done before mounting the board in a case.

The Wifi module is actually a USB adapter, requiring an internal USB header to connect to the system. As the board only has two internal USB headers, this may be undesirable for some users.

The module overhangs the chipset heatsink. Not an ideal placement.
