Upgrading to Wireless-N

Post by AuroEdge » Tue Sep 08, 2009 11:24 pm

Need more range for wireless and it just so happens my router supports 802.11n. My question though is do I need to replace the antennas already installed in my laptop and if so is there more to know about optimum placement of said antennas? I have an Intel 3945ABG with two antennas fished up through opposite sides of the screen bezel. I'm looking to get the Intel 5300 card which supports three antennas. The antennas appear to be the same basically only difference being the colors of the insulation. I would also have to buy another antenna and find a place to put it in the body of the laptop.

what you might wanna do is use the antennas already there, then get another one and snake an extension through the body of the laptop adding an external antenna connector.
