    Depends on the unit you are plugging the card into. Laptops usually have a port on the side or back for external cards which can accept a wifi card while powered on with no ill effects, but I would not do this with an internal component.

    I've shorted a number of devices. Not fun. I think if you're reading the question without any outside knowledge, D would be the best choice. Although the other options make sense, only D is actually mentioned in the question. It makes questions trickier, I think, when you know more than they are telling you. But if this were on, say, the SAT, I'd go with D. Assume you know nothing. In the real world, have someone else put in the wireless card and cross your fingers.

    Yes. I agree. This question was posted in another group and I replied that the anser is D according to the context of the question.
