My Slim came without the wifi board, and subsequently without the holding screw.

Anyone know the thread, size, or depth of a replacement screw I could use to hold the replacement in? It seems like it won't go anywhere with the pseudo-USB connector in place, but I'd like to be positive.

Any help would be appreciated!

Tuve ese mismo problema. Fui a una tienda y el técnico tuvo que quitarle la tarjeta de WiFi a otro xbox porque no hay repuesto

Worth noting.. Before you purchase a new wifi card, try taking it out and reseating it. Just had to do that with mine when the wifi suddenly stopped working. Once I pulled the card and put it back in, it worked beautifully.

Also, for clarification, you are opening the side OPPOSITE the side with the hard drive.
