Hey guys,

So I bought this WiFi Intel 3168NGW LINK for my Hp Pavilion x360 cr0055od with these Antennas LINK but I'm afraid I ordered the wrong Antennas again... :eek::(

They will work but if you want the definition of Hell it's having to connect those antenna connectors to a wi-fi card.

I know right. Like I remember mSata cards being so super-easy but with M.2 the slightest touch will take the Antenna off. Like when I opened up the Laptop the Original Antenna was held on by tape to have a secure connection

was it new? I would have flipped out if I saw tape used on a new laptop.
I took out my laptop wi-fi card and use a USB hub

same exact one just 1/2 the price

Hmm but I was wanting to use CLOUDREADY which that OS *Hopefully supports it but I'm sure it will and the Laptop is new that's why I was shocked!

Also from what I recall mSata Wi-Fi Card the connector had like a magnet feed to where you hear a click when it's connected. With M.2 there's no feed I feel but only the slightest bit but it's no where like msata
