Those helped me get going but this following was the link that helped me figure out how to add a second antenna!!!

now I am rocking it with BT and widi WOOT! laugh out loud no one can stop me now bounce
I also have wifi and BT working using that guy's exact configuration. However, when using my bluetooth headset for calls, the reception and range is horrible. I suspect it might be the arrangement of the aux BT antenna we installed. Anyone have ideas on how to fix this / coil the antenna?

Try snaking the wire around the little spaces instead of coiling and try two ways, 1. placing the golden square to the left side or 2. placing it to the right side, and see which side gives the best reception. In both place the golden square towards the front of the pc, to the left or right of the touchpad.
Also, make sure that the black built-in cable is connected to the MAIN plug of the 6235 and the white, your cable, is connected to the AUX plug.

Keep in mind that when these antennas are factory/professionally installed, they are placed behind the LCD cover with a certain distance between them so as to provide max power at receive or emit.
We can not do that here.

Yeah, once I taped that second antenna to the SSD, WiDi and BT works fine now with the Intel 6235.
Can you tell us which drivers/software you have installed to enable WIDI? I've got the original antenna to main, 2nd antenna to aux taped to the hard drive, but it still won't give me widi.

thanks.

Make sure you update the latest intel HD400 drivers from the ASUS website and not from Intel website. Also the latest 6235 software made WiDi alot more stable. I can connect on the first try MOST of the time. Once connected, connection is very stable.

The laterst BIOS for both the S200e and the X202e is 210 dated 7/9/2013:

http://support.asus.com/Download/...=en&type=1

I can get to the BIOS if I hit F2 ONLY AFTER a warm boot or RESTART not a cold boot.

In my S200e the touch screen went haywire out of the blue, with icons changing size, flashing jumping around, disappearing, etc. It somehow became defective all by itself.
I sent the notebook to ASUS for warranty service and got it back with a brand new screen, BUT the new screen was a X202e screen that had the white AUX WiFi built-in in the LCD cover, so there is no need for the white add-on antenna wire anymore.
