Hello,

I have a Pavillion dv2915nr laptop with a built-in Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Mini PCIe card. I want to upgrade to a wireless N card, but I would prefer to avoid USB or ExpressCard adapters. As far as I know, mini PCIe cards should be attached to the motherboard with 2 screws. So I'm just wondering if all I need to do is get any mini PCIe wireless N and install it or if there is a specific kind that will work with my laptop. Any ideas? Thanks for the help!

Do wireless N mini PCIe cards have 3 antenna connections or 2? My laptop is probably only equipped for 2 antenna connections, so if 3 are required for N, do I just connect 2 and leave the 3rd unconnected?
