I bought one of these E888 android stick thingys however the wireless performance is almost non existent, it works, if I have my phone hotspot over it lol, but it won't connect to the router in the other room...

I've installed Finless custom Rom, moved the antenna and even clipped off the ground wire to prevent it shorting... however none of this seems to be working... does anyone have any other things I can try? Seems such a waste of what would otherwise be quite a good dongle

PS I've already gotten my money back on it so I'm open for experimentation

Definitely seems like something wrong with the antenna wiring. Shouldn't there be two wires?

google for "RK3188 wifi solder"


Alternatively you can get a wired USB->LAN 10/100 adapter for $6

Ha not sure, I don't think all versions have two wires im sure ive seen some shots where there is only one? :S

Maybe the lan thingy could work, didn't think of that, would make those powerline adapters useful for something finally lol...
