Boot from LAN using Wireless Adapter

I have one Cisco Wireless PCI Adapter. Does it have a feature like PXE BootROM in NIC, so I can boot from LAN using wireless adapter?

I'm pretty sure it doesn't. At issue would be the necessary setup for things like SSID.

Maybe in the future; many motherboards & chipsets are including Wireless NICs, they would need to provide some setup in the BIOS to configure the basic communication parameters necessary to establish the Layer one / Layer two link.

Good Luck

Your machine can boot using the Wireless PCI adapter as long it is already configured for your wireless network. Give it a try.

Hi csannedhi,

Could you give me more details about that? I know some laptops can do. But ScottMac said that desktops could not.

Thanks,
