I enjoy tinkering with computers even though I have absolultly no idea what I'm doing. I've voided countless warrenties and fried my share of components in my day. I'm looking for someone who actually knows what there doing :whistling:

I'm trying to hook an external antenna into my 802.11g mini card wireless adapter. The problem is that my wireless card is INTERNAL. I've built my antenna using a bunch of junk I found in my garage and I have obtained a SMA connector along with an adapter plug that changes it to a TNC conector so the antenna is pretty much as ready as it'll ever be... I haven't gotten around to actually buying anything so I don't have a pigtail. Now before I tear my Laptop apart I just wanted to know what exactly I have to do. I have a history of randomly crossing wires and unhooking key componants for no reason, but my current computer is quite expensive and I've decided to forgo the trial and error. Does anyone have any good advice? (Don't do it. has already been noted)

Thanks a bunch :blink:
