Hi @mohd9390,

Checked this out with part numbers recommended by a Dell SM Support.

You don't need any wire or antenna for it. Just plug those cards into the m.2 slot of your mini machine is good enough.

One more recommandation. If you don't really sure whether your machine have a spare m.2 slot, DO check it PHYSICALLY before purchasing anything. It would be a disaster if there's already a m.2 SSD hard drive there ^^"

The on-board M.2-WLAN slot likely works, but you will have to use the 3050's internal "antennas wires" ... if Dell provided them.

I suggest you download the PDF manuals.

It's your choice, but machine should really have some-kind-of SSD (SATA or M.2/NVMe) for Windows and all programs to boot and run from.
