W500 - modem port to USB mod

2015-05-25, 6:46 AM

Hi all,

 

I would attempt such a mod on the W500 that I own. There are a few questions:

1. Is it possible to get 2 extra ports (connector wise) from the mobo?

2. mechanically - I still have to disassembly the W500 and check the upper right side - for space.

 

I have no idea if anyone attempted such a thing before ..

 

Any idea / comment / advice is welcome.

W500 / T61p / T61 / R60

There are no connectors on the motherboard for attaching other devices
