Hey all, going to be picking up an Intel 633AN.HMWWB mPCIE wifi card for a build I'm doing.

I'm kinda stumped regarding where to buy antenna connectors and which antennas I would need to get for it. It seems to come as a standalone part and I'm just not sure what antennas or antenna wires to get for it.

I don't have any parts I can use for this currently, or I would just cannibalize something and see if it worked.

Having a noob moment, any help? :rolleyes:

Those antenna connectors on your Intel mPCIE wifi card are called UFL connectors.
so you would need to pick up 3 connectors/antennas, and hook up all 3 for the best signal strength.

Maybe something like this?

Or this??

Or even this should work..

Thanks for the info!

These are almost exactly what I need, but I think you've provided me with the information I need to move ahead with this project.

I need U.FL to Coax bulkheads that work for 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, but at least I know what I'm looking for now!

:D:DD:

Yeah I'm building a Thin Mini-ITX inside of an old radio with a 160W power brick. It's got a slot for an mSATA card (using for SSD) and another half-height mPCIE card (using for wifi). Thanks for the reply regardless though.
