Windows 7: Wifi antennae adaption - will it work? Please help!

Alphanumeric posted whilst I was typing! The next question is whether I make two different backplates, one for each cable or whether I do it of one. Surely with one it would muck up the circuit or will it not matter?

I would do one backplate with two of the bowtie (figure 8) antenna's.

Then one of the wires (white or black) are soldered to one of the bowties.

Each bowtie has two soldering points.

One (the copper center conductor) at the solid middle of the bowtie. The other (the braided silver colored sheathing) where the ends meet.

Then you do the other (black or white) the same way.

Thank you very much, that is what I thought! So dimension wise now, would it be 118mm tall and 252mm wide? The centre connectors for the Bowtie things will be halfway up (59mm) and in from the side 66mm right? Thanks for the help!

P.S. @alphanumeric, please could you plus rep anak for me as I can't do it more than once. @Anak, alphanumeric has been helpful too, could you also give him some rep for me ?
Give me a little while, and I'll have a drawing made up for you.

I'm watching the NFL (American Football) Playoffs, makin' dinner for when the DW comes home from work, and keepin' track of our correspondence.

For the backplate, the 118 sounds right, but it is 260 instead of 252, think 'bout it.....

You need two 66's=132+128=260


Ohh....'bout your p.s. that is a no no. Begging for rep can at the very least earn you an admonishment, if not an outright ban from the forums.

Thank you ever so much! That drawing made things clear. 252 was because I read the bottom number as 120 rather than 128 so my mistake! When I get another spair moment, will dig out some materials. Afraid I am busy at the moment as I do have GCSEs coming up and they come first. But when I get time will have a look! Also, for the rep thing, I am very sorry, I didn't realize it would be that bad! Very sorry for that! Thank you very much again!

Your welcome!

Just take your time, Measure twice, cut once

No harm done, have a look here at Reputation and Badges [7] the first red warning box.

And, hope you do well on those GCSE's.
