20 meters is a LONG way to go with an antenna wire for this application. Generally it is not recommended to extend the wire between the card and the antebba more than 3 meters. You would need to use thick, low-loss, cable that is very expensive. But if you must, computer stores sell extension cables.

I may not be understanding what you are stating, so bear with me;

1) The Wireless Modem antenna wires are up in the Display Assembly,

In otherwords they should already be there.

2) The 802.11 Mini PCI Card, is a Wireless Module.
It goes in the Mini PCI Compartment, under the Mini PCI Compartment Cover, located on the bottom of the laptop.

It's made by Broadcom,

(Gateway 6002672 part number)

See at the Top right where it states Main, and has a white Side Arrow?
This terminal is where the Black wire (Lead) of the wireless antenna connects to.

The other terminal, AUX, is where the White wire connects to.

Here is the Service Manual, (PDF file form),

Page 13.

REMEMBER, remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery, before working on the laptop. Also follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Compaq presario 2100 how to install a Wireless pci card

If there is no antenna then you'll have to buy the wire set via eBay, take apart the lcd, remove the top assembly of the laptop and then run them through the computer and put everything back. NOT FUN.

It's probably much easier and realistic to just purchase a usb wireless card.

Hope this info helps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

I am looking to fit a mini pci wireless card in to my toshiba p10-382 but cannot seem to find an aerial inside the compartment, is there one fitted to the unit or do i need to obtain one, thanks.

Mini PCI wireless cards are usually equipped with internal antennas, so you don't need to worry about it unless you have an external plug in the card itself where you can attach an external antenna.

System do not reconize the PCI card

Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.
The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.

Download detects networks

Usually when this happens the antenna wire connections have come dislodged. Did you put this in recently? Has the laptop been dropped? The internal antenna wires snap onto this type of internal wireless card and not always snap on secure. THat would be the 1st thing to check.

Instaling a wireless pci card

First, as this is a type 3 mini pci slot that has your modem installed need to know if under or near the pci modem there are 2 wires with micro mini attach points. these would be the wires to attach the antenna to the wireless card. If there are no wires, then you will have to purchase the antennas as well. Normally these wires run up under the back side of the LCD Bezel.

Sounding complicated yet? Have you considered a USB wireless adapter from,,,,or e-bay, not to mention local stores.
