 going clockwise all the tools you need.
wera esd screwdrivers(any old screwdrivers will do)
a drill or brace.

Step 2: The Start

just a small note:
i am by no means telling you to do this.
this may damage your pc.
invalidate your warranty.

start by drilling a hole through the case just big enough for the screw end of the pigtail lead to go into.

Step 3: Connecting It All Together

 unplug the main plug on your wifi card and plug the pigtail lead on.

    You need to re-load the images. I'd advise you resize to 800x600 and save as .jpg (without the square brackets)

    Yeah I can see it now. The original thing was poor but you fixed it - out of general interest where did you get your new aerial?
