How to boost the wifi range of a nintendo ds?

If you wanted to open it up you could solder a external antenna in the internal one. I don't actually know the wiring of the wireless antennas (To add a external) But I know that the antennas are in the lid of DS. Good luck!

If you go to the search bar and put "ds wifi", I put an Instructable with the answer. If it's not there, take alumuim foil and fold it so its 1 inch wide. Then put it under your ds. You will notice a boost in signal strength.
I'll have to try it. Would it work if I stuck the foil inside the battery compartment, like under the battery, or does it have to be in a certain place?
I haven't tried that. You could give it a try. If it works, tell me.
