Help finding/understanding antennae

Post by _Bandit_ »

Hey guys

I've recently bought an ROG Maximus VI GENE and an Intel Centrino 6235 mPCIe card.

The thing is I have no idea as to which cable/antennae to get for the card. Could someone please link me to some local product pages?

If possible, could they be compact since I'll be travelling a lot with my PC

Not sure if these work with your card and I cannot find a good image of it.

Yes they can be compact. Here is a link with some options

Amazon - just look at the types and track them down locally

I use this kind

I am sure you can buy them from any PC shop in SA. Matrix Warehouse has some. Sure most shops will

Hi Bandit

They network card you have there is essentially a laptop network card, which requires the very small connectors

This is the best example I could find. I believe they are called Micro Connectors but i stand to be corrected

They are U.FL connectors. A real PITA to work with though, tends to come loose or break every opportunity they can.
