Google Cr-48 Chrome notebook teardown

Azurewave AW-NE773 Mini PCI-Express 802.11 a/b/g/n module

The Cr-48 Chrome notebook has an Azurewave AW-NE773 Wi-Fi. It's located under the thin ribbon cable the connects the small USB/headphone PCN to the motherboard. To remove the card, you'll need to disconnect the two antenna cables and remove a single Phillips screw. Now is also a good time to remove the thin ribbon cable from the motherboard.
