Question on Laptop PCI E Card Upgrades and Antennas
Hey guys, its 2 Bunny again. This time, I have a new type of question. As some of you may know, I retired my old pavilion laptop and may or may not be purchasing a Lenovo N200 in the near future, but the particular one I am possibly looking at lacks bluetooth, but does have a WiFi antenna and a WiFi PCI E card internally. Looking at the service manual, it seems like it should not be difficult to upgrade to a PCI E card that has both WiFi and bluetooth, but my question is, do I need to run a new antenna for the bluetooth? Does the bluetooth need an extra antenna or is it just such a short range radio that it doesn't need one? Page 49 in here hopefully illustrates this a bit better.
I guess my bottom line is, "if I buy a WiFi/Bluetooth combo MiniPCI card, can I be certain that it will physically work with the antenna that is already there"? From the picture, it would appear that two antenna cables come down to the card from the depths of the laptop.
Also, these are compatible with 64 bit WinXP and Windows 7 right?
