I was cleaning the inside of my m8430f and somehow pulled the power connection for my wireless antenna out from the board. I would like to know where I plug it back into the motherboard. I believe it came out of either - F_USB5, F_USB3, or F_USB4. F_USB6 is where the the personal media drive bay is plugged into. I am wondering if it makes a difference and can I utilize either of the other three that are open; since I did not see where it was initially plugged into before it got pulled out? If someone has the same model could you tell me where yours is connected. I would appreciate it.

This is your PC's motherboard. Do you have a wireless card installed? I would suspect that the unplugged cable if it is the antenna goes to the wireless card.
