'[TECH] Adding an 802.11n MiniPCIE card to my netbo'

Hello all,

quick question: my netbook has a mini pcie 802.11g wireless card in it.
I'd like to upgrade it to n. I've noticed all the n cards have
connections for 3 antennas, while my the G adapter in my netbook only
has 2. Are there any options? Can I just connect 2 and go with that?
Don't really know where I'd find (and how I'd install) a 3rd antenna.

Thanks for any pointers.

I suspect you could go ahead and leave the third antenna disconnected.
It would lower your total possible throughput, but I doubt the module
would be damaged - these rf transceivers seem reasonably robust.

You could alo purchase an embedded antenna and hide a third antenna
inside the computer somewhere.

ufl is another term beside i-pex for that particular connector type
(there are others as well):

Ahh, good.

Well, as an update, the card I wanted to get (the Intel 5100) actually
only has 2 antenna ports (the photo on the website of the store I bought
it at was wrong) so all is good!

Thanks for the pointers.
