As the subject states, I have a Slimline s7520n desktop pc. I currently have it wired with an RJ45 cable to my router. I noticed it has what I've found out to be a reverse-polarity SMA female end for a wifi antenna on the back of it. Does the network adapter installed have wireless b/g capabilities? Can anyone tell me a good retailer to find such an antenna?
My network adapter is a Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC. Device Manager also shows USB Wireless 802.11 b/g Adaptor made by Gemtek (I guess it's internal).
Also, what is the wireless switch that I need to turn on? I've looked all over this pc and I can't find a switch.
Thanks for your time.

You will need no switch. It should be a male connector on the back of the computer.(threaded)
You will need one this size. http://tinyurl.com/c59nfa It is the same one I use on my S7700N. I had one that was an antenna with a long cable and it was horrible. The one I posted works better and takes up almost zero space and does not get in the way.
