  1. Also, does this card use the u. fl/IPEX connector?
  2. Take a look at the picture in the link you provided, specifically at the 3 round connectors at the top of the card (numbered 1, 2, &3). Those are u. fl/IPEX connectors. Virtually all laptop antennas use those connectors. The real question is does your motherboard have a mini PCI Express slot on it? (approx 1" wide)
