Installing the wifi antennae wires

I purchased the dv4000 direct from HP in 2005 and didnt think to include a wifi. I did eventually purchase an internal wifi card and the antennae wire but i have no idea how to route the wire inside the case. Right now, I have the wire coming out of the case where the card was installed and taped to the bottom and top of the unit for reception. I went the internal wifi card route because on this unit, no idea why, a pcmcia card would constantly lose the signal....any ideas on how to route the wire would be greatly apprciated.....Alan

    Appreciate the response....was wondering too (and I should have mentioned it in the origianal thread) what to do with the ends of the antennae as they have thin, about 1.5" L x .5"w tabs that appear to be something you screw down in the case somewhere.

    OK thanks gang --- I will open it up and sniff around for placement of the wires and then shut it down....Alan

You just have to route it through the case covering as much area as possible, as spaced out as possible. Also, the reason PCMCIA cards don't get very good signals is simply because they don't have enough space to have a properly sized antenna.

Use wifi on hp 1730 desktop


Most desktop PCs do not come with integrated wifi. Thus, in order to use wifi on these devices, you must purchase an wifi adapter for the device. This can be in the form of an expansion card installed internal to the device (assuming there is space to do so) or by using an external, USB dongle-style adapter (easier by far). Once you purchase the adapter, simply follow the installation instructions to install the hardware and load the driver software.

Any TV that has a Coaxial input can connect directly to an RF antenna. If this person lives near a large city, its likely they will receive more channels than if they live somewhere remote. Perhaps an antenna with a powered Signal Booster will improve the signal. Neither are included so I think Radio Shack has a good selection.

98 plymouth voyager radio wont work. comes in as static. am works fine.


First start with pulling out the radio and make sure the antenna wire is plugged in. The last owner might have had an aftermarket radio in it and when they put the factory one back, forgot a wire. To remove it remove the trim ring (two screws I think) and then the radio screws.

No antenna cables on toshiba satellite 1405 s151


Some models that come with a wifi card already in them have an antenna. Since you purchased your card after the laptop it does not have an internal antenna. You can purchase the internal antenna but this will require you to take apart your screen.

You could purchase a PCMCIA or USB wifi adapter and use an antenna with those devices without taking apart your laptop.

Hope this helps.
