    11= Network Interface Card Installation =

    3 == Initial installation ==
     3This page describes how we install the network interface card (Intel Centrino Advanced-N WiMAX 6250) into our testbed client platform (Dell's Latitude D830).

    5 == Final installation ==
     5== a. Temporary installation ==
     6The type of network interface card is mini-PCI express.
     7The client platform (Latitude D830) has two mini-PCI express slots inside the body, one for WLAN and the other for WWAN.
     8We selected the WWAN slot to install the NIC as an additional interface.
     9The slot only allows full-size interface but the NIC shapes in half-size so we need to make it fit on the slot.
     10We temporary fix the NIC on the slot with wood stick as shown in following:

     15== b. NIC size extension ==
     16In above reason, we need to purchase brackets to extend the size of "mini-size" NIC card to be fit into the "full-size' mini-PCI express slot.
     17We placed the order two brackets through Ebay ([http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170544115545&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT]) which only cost few dollars ($4.66 each).
     18We attached the bracket to the NIC as follows:

     22== c. Final installation ==
     23Finally, we removed the wood sticks and installed the NIC extended full-size into the slot.
     24The snapshot of the installed NIC is as follows:
