I built a little PC out of eBay parts, and the motherboard didn't come with WiFi antennas. I love that the wifi still works. Feels like the little buddy is just sucking internet connectivity out of the aether

@Zuph I think as long as the WiFi router is close to the PC and you don't expect very high throughput, some WiFi signals will still get through. This has been my experience with testing embedded WiFi gear without antennas.

BTW, the Raspberry Pi has an interesting antenna-less WiFi design, but I doubt the motherboard has this: [ magpi.raspberrypi.org/articles ]
