    Does anybody here have the XPS 15 with the Intel Ultimate 6300-N Wireless Card? I just so happen to have the Intel Ultimate 6300-N sitting around and wondered where the Black and White wires hook up.

    Those are just the antenna wires that connect to the wireless card. I don't know if it matters which terminal they connect to or not. The antennas may be a specific length to coincide with a particular wireless type.

    Dell's documentation on the L501x is pretty good, I suggest you take a look on their support site for it.

    Hopefully that is all you need.

    Thanks. But the problem is that the Intel Ultimate 6300-N has three spots for wireless antennas/wire hook ups. I'm just assuming that it'll go in slots one and two?

    Yea I was wondering about that. I'm not sure if you need to hook anything to the third connector.

    sorry to ask a dumb question, but when you order the xps with the best wireless option, you have to PLUG things in? it isnt all just built internally?

    I have the 6300 card but I'm at work right now. I'll check when I get home in an hour or so. But, I don't think I matters where the antennas go.

    If you could, thanks. I am looking forward to installing the card into my XPS 15 when Dell fixes my laptop.
