Replacing MBP Super Drive for WiFi Card

8

I'm looking to make this annoying, but exceedingly strong, wifi card inside my MBP. I plan on placing it where the SuperDrive currently is. Has anyone here had any experience with putting usb peripherals inside a MacBook. I've looked up various DIY project where soldering to the logic board was needed but I'm a little wary of this whole thing. I've made sure that the everything worked on the card by making a nasty looking usb connection by just shoving the wires into the back side of the usb male port. Looking to do this soon as the risk is a whole lot cheaper than replacing the logic board as that is the part that I messed up when plugging Airport card in backwards.
