Default BCM70012 replacing WiFi module - 11-14-2009, 05:45 PM

Hi, does BCM70012 taken from HP Mini 110 works in Dell Mini 9 on WiFi slot?

Have Dell Mini 9 without the WAN Slot soldered.

If it works, I plan to give up the WiFi module.

Have question how to manage the 2 antenna, do I need to stick it with anti-static tape?

It works fine.

You don't need an anti-static tape or anything else when you install it. Just take out the WIFI card and put it in.

It will not. The WiFi slot is the only real MiniPCIe slot. The WWAN slot is USB only.
