    Alright Macsters, I need some help trying to figuring out where do you reconnect the airport antenna in the intel Mac mini dual core 1.83....I have had a mini before but with no airport antenna....i upgraded my ram to 3 gb with no prob....i just got my new hard drive today 200gb 7200rpm Seagate w/16mb cache and when i flipped the hard drive section over, the cable disconnected from somewhere but i never seen where it was connected in the first place....i seen the other post on the forum but it wasn't too much help. I would hope someone could help me please and possibly provide pictures, that would be so awesome to help a newbie.....

    Here's a pic where you can see where it should go:

    It's that black cable near the top middle. The silver card next to the heatsink is the airport card.

    worked like a charm...thanks so much man, i got worried....but fyi...if your antenna is actually disconnected form the unit, i found out that if the mini is pretty close to the router, it actually picks up the signal anyway!!!!
