I used my swiss army knife. October 27, Comments excellent thanks. The empty mini-pci slot Not much there, but that is how it looks. The right end of the panel can then be raised slightly, and the panel can be pushed slightly to the right, and then raised. Removing the keyboard Slide the keyboard slowly towards the display, applying moderate pressure.

Press these arms outwards with your thumbs, and lift the card with your index fingers.
A useful guide, it helped me to install an Intel wireless card into an Iwill ii laptop. It has to move less than 1cm, just enough aus release a series of tabs at the front end of the keyboard. Thanks so much for the detail and the pictures. Place the panel a little bit too far to the right and slide it back into place. Your new card should show up in the list.
The short story is that it can be done upgrading the builtin wireless card in the laptop, and it works. I assume the wire is for the antenna.
Fix the two screws under the button panel that keeps the keyboard in place. You have the connectors in the front, the two arms that hold the card in place, and the black wire antenna.
I used my swiss army knife. I just bought a laptop for my parents with no integrated wireless. Make sure the taps slide correctly into the holes n2400 the front.
ASUS MN review – Engadget
The socket is below the keyboard, more or less in the middle. Removing the keyboard Slide the keyboard slowly towards the display, applying moderate pressure.
Once it is inserted properly, push it down gently, until the two arms snap into place, locking the card.
Install the necessary drivers and enjoy! Test Turn on the computer, log in as root and run the command lspci. On the photo to the right the screwdriver is inserted in the currect position. On the sides of the slot are two arms, ending in a semi-circular knob. Attaching the antenna was the hardest part as it seems to demand a worrying amount of force.

Use your nails or some small implement. First detach the black wire from the card. The long story, with photos of each step, is in the extended copy below. First, shutdown and turn off the computer.
Use some object to keep it upright, in the middle. The keyboard can now be lifted up and turned upside down towards yourself. Loosening the keyboard Place the detached panel vertically towards the display not the way I have placed it on the photo: There is a metallic knob at the bottom of the keyboard, that has to fit into the hole m24000 the left of the mini-pci slot.
