Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook ?

Wireless conection I have been given the laptop after it was dropped, tha screen smashed, the hinges broke, and all connecting wires were ripped from the motherboard. No problem, ha, everything works except wireless itrs got to be on top of the router to get a signal. Question. is the wireless antenna in the lid? if so where do the "bare wires" go on the motherboard? yes the connector did not survive.


Answers :

The antenna is in the LCD. The antenna usually connects to a MiniPCI card situated usually next the the memory or under the keyboard. They connect via small coaxial connectors. I've never seen them connect directly to the motherboard an any notebook I've worked on.
That depends. What is the make of the LT?
