Default [Q] Wifi detection range and signal huge decrease

Hello. Recently, I opened the back cover of my note a couple of time to reattach the loose LCD ribbon in my tablet. During this time, Isomehow,noticed that the wifi was not working! Well, it was working, but I cant use my device unless im < 10 feet away from a router. However before, it was working perfectly fine, and on my other.devices, everything is fine. Is this a well known problem? Did I damge the internet card in my tablet? Also, the signal is around -60 when im close b
ut when.I walk 10 feet away it is like -90.

I would imagine you have disturbed the Wifi antenna. I haven't seen inside the tablet, but it would more than likely have at least one antenna connected to the Wifi module.

It's usually a thin wire running on the outer frame.

Default My tablet can not see my wifi router when it suddenly shutdown.

I don't know why my tablet never see name of my wifi router if suddenly turnoff wifi router. I used WP2 and AES & TSKIP.
And if want my tablet P600 see my rounter wifi, i must go to wifi router setting to change AES or TSKIP and then my tablet can see it. But my galaxy s4 don't have this problem. Maybe kernel of galaxy note?
