  • Open the lid othe the netbook. Use the Jimmy from the upper left corner of the keyboard. Put it between the keyboard and th casing and move it to the right. It might help to use a metal spudger to push in the pins holding the keyboard in place.

  • Then move down along the sides where there is one pin on each side. After that twist the keyboard towards you.

  • With an anti static spudger carfully remove the antenna cables from the connection on the WiFi-card.

  • Remove the screw to then lift the card from the socket.

  • Now you can install a new or better WiFi-card. I have installed a Dualband AC card from Intel into my netbook, the AC 7260.
