Need to boost the signal on my Nexus S, it's almost unusable and switching to 3G in the next room from the router (expensive here in rural .au).
Tried three routers, channels, different devices etc.. it all points to a crap antenna in the nexus S or a crap wi-fi implementation.
I'm going to have a go at hacking it and while I have some experience messing with hardware, I've never successfully modded an aerial, I expect there's too much theory involved for me as whenever I read up on it there's a lot of conflicting info.
Anyway at this point my options I'm considering are:
- Cut internal antenna at start, wire in notebook wifi antenna (including cable/not including cable?)
- wire in notebook wifi antenna at end of internal antenna (including cable/not including cable?)
- wire in notebook wifi antenna at start of internal antenna (including cable/not including cable?)
Given that length is of utmost importance with antenna I'm hoping that it'll just go from a 1/4 length antenna to a 1/2 length or some such but does someone want to correct me?
Guess I'll just test it myself..
I couldn't find any other threads about this (with solutions) so I'll document as I go.
Anyone want to offer any advice before I get started tonight?
