External Antenna?

Postby craleu » Fri Oct 19, 2012 5:52 pm

Would it be possible to remove the wifi plates and solder like a router antenna to them?
I've ordered an antenna will post photos of signal improvement

use one of those (best nr 6) x2 solder to the place of current antennas and use antennas what ever You want 8-)
only thing is if the device can power the antenna if it will be 7dbi x2 :mrgreen:
I will do the same with mine when it comes and will have problem with connectivity.
I used those to upgrade wifi usbs in good old wardriving times :lol:

by the way why none try it for mk802 when it had so poor antenna inside :?: :!: :idea:

edit: i was wrong someone already did it :twisted:

I am interested in this hack too.
However, I don't have much experience tinkering with external wifi antenna... :oops:

I received mine. No wifi drop out, line-of-sight abt 1.5m gave me 3 bars. It would be fun to do some modding on my new toy :lol:

Hello guys

Take 2 Wires with 6,3cm lenght and solder it to each ANT pad.
You will see it works.

Very important: Do not use the original antenna Cable.
The Chinese have built crap in the Production, and produces a short circuit at the antenna Cable.

@Siocran : I just bought 2 external WiFi antennas, like yours, and I intend to do the same modding.
Can you tell, it's a REALLY improvement in WiFi reception ? Thanks in advance !
