I'm currently using a cardbus wireless g card. I have seen some mini PCI atheros b/g cards recently on ebay that come with an antenna and a couple of plastic bits (brackets?). I had always assumed that mini pci cards connected to some integral antenna and that with my laptop (Dell Inspiron 5000E) I would not be able to just remove my pci modem and replace with a wlan pci card. Can the cards I mentioned above be fitted to any laptop as long as there's a mini pci slot? If so, where would you route the antenna? Thanks for any advice.
