The link you provided is for converting a SATA MiniPCIE SSD to a mini-PATA interface. That won't help here.

The problem is that Dell custom-wired the connector. It is a MiniPCIe in form factor,...

Dell does not run this site, and never has. It was started by a user, and then sold to someone else who has been hands-off.

I don't agree - I find it is usable within the limits of a 12-year-old low-end system. But I certainly would not recommend it to anyone other than a toy.

Windows 10 works fine on the Mini 9. That's what I have on it. No need for XP. But, yeah, Linux may be a better option for many. That the 9 is 32-bit restricts you a lot.

I can't recommend running MacOS on the Mini 9 nowadays as you are stuck on a very old and unsupported 32-bit version. A lot of software won't run there. Current Linux or Windows works.

The WiFi card should go into a MiniPCIe slot. If you don't have that either, then you can get an inexpensive USB WiFi dongle.
