So I have an older sony vaio that has a mini pci slot, and I have a mini pci wireless G card that I have in it w/drivers loaded. I just installed it, and don't have much experience with the internal wireless cards. It is on there, recognized in windows, but no signal. When I say no signal, I mean I have the laptop in the same room as the router (which is a good router, used by 3 other laptops). So I'm thinking I missed something with installing the card. My only concern is the antennas. I'm assuming the two wires that hook on to the wireless card are the antennas. now with the small circular spots for one end of each of the wires, is there anything I'm supposed to do with the other end? Are these installed differently with every laptop?


...help...

I believe you are doing this correctly, the antennas are connected on one side, and the other is fed up by the display to act like a pole. can you try this card in another laptop? or another card in this one?

this was working in the laptop it was pulled out of (at least the card was). Maybe I might try different antennas.
