Hey guys, first if this is posted in the wrong thread please move it


I've been willing to make my Wireless USB Mouse dongle become internal, because its sticking outside my lappy. So far i've found this Mini PCIe adapter Click

The point is can i use the SATA cables and possibly mod them to fit another USB dongle or this is a pipe dream, and if not can i stick 2 port hub to the usb connector? I hope im making sense here


Thanks in advance

The miniPCIe to USB card will probably work as long as everything fits, I don't see why it wouldn't work. It might be worth the time to take the casing off everything and take the usb connectors off and solder wires directly. The card looks as if its pretty much a bare PCB, so you should be able to just stack the wireless dongle ontop. If you are really up to the task, look up the pinouts of the connector, and I think you can directly solder to the pads.

Edit: here the pinout to the connector, you don't even need a card if you want to do it on the cheap.

MiniCard Pinout Pin # Signal Name Pin # Signal Name

As you can see, you have the 2 usb data lines right there.
