I left the extra length on the mother board. I wasn’t sure were to put it so it taped it were there the second pci-e is supposed to be. I tried to make as big a loop as possible to prevent inductance.
Actually I hesitated when putting the aerial behind the screen because I’m not sure wich part of the aerial does what. If it’s just the square end that is the aerial, then it doesn’t matter; if it’s the whole cable(which I suspect but i can’t remember physics class), then it probably does:
in the lid, there is a sheet of aluminum glued to the cover for some purpose (interference ?). I taped the wire there in the middle (as supposed to for 802.11n I believe), but I think that it would provide better reception if I cut the alu for 0.5cm around the cable. I’ll try and do that next week if I have time (and I also suspect the screw cover I lost to be stuck inside).
As for parts and where to put them, it’s no big deal for the nc10. Just be careful and separate sets of screws. They’re all the same for the screen, the same under the computer… I put it all in a small box (except for the screw covers which led to losing one :-/ )
Anyway, 300Mbps is working fine 😀
