well i just had a look around and i managed to delete the wifi card pull apart pics in the upgrade i have done in the last couple of days (basically a full rip up job of the network and storage, rebuilt from the ground up, ironically its now set up to help prevent me from losing data)

i might have a backup that i will look into but as i have a card thats not working i will pull that one apart for the demonstration

one word of warning: this is a very very hard hack to pull off with a good chance of permanently damaging hardware, this isnt a normal disclaimer, i have personally destroyed 2 wifi cards as its a B%^$ to solder onto, which in turn causes the radio chipset to get to hot

you really need the right equipment. if you dont have a high wattage soldering iron, good soldering skills (ie soldered for an hour or 3 in the past 2 weeks) and a way of cooling down the rest of the device (clip on heatsinks work well) then i would not attempt this

if you can get a cable then get one and leave it at that, its your best bet.

--- EDIT ---
thanks for the PM messages, i did get them but the upgrade took longer than anticipated (had ta account for several hundred gigs of data, don't want to lose anything)
