    I built a i9-9900k rig to replace my very old i7-3930k rig. I didn't have a network but am going to create one consisting of the new and old. I'm going to install a Ubit AX-200 Wifi 6 card in the old rig (Azrock extreme mobo) and along with the new rig network them with a ASUS AX-3000 Wifi 6 router. Not sure yet if I'll hardwire the new rig w/cat 7 cable or use the installed Killer WiFi 6 AX1650 card.
    My question is, what do I need to do to the old rig to get it setup to network (via Wifi) and run from just the box, no monitor, no keyboard, just throw it in a corner, fire it up and run it/access it from the new rig as needed for storage, backup, misc etc. The old rig's drivers are up to date, Win 10 has the current build etc.

    Thanks
    Chops
