I was doing some cleaning of my older Acer Aspire 3860 laptop and noticed that my wireless card looks alot like an mSATA drive. I have not been inside laptops too often (clean, add RAM) but never really had a part stick out at me.
Is this a PCIe slot that I can put anything in or is it a dedicated wifi slot?
There looks to be a deal on a drive and I am wondering if anyone knows that a swap for the wifi is possible?
If I look up Atheros - it is described as a wireless G wifi mini PCIe.
Here is an image of the two cards.
Top card is mSATA, bottom is Wifi.
