Step 2: Drill a Hole in the Case.
Find where the case lines up with with the port on the right and drill a hole big enough for the pigtail adapter to fit through.
Step 3: Put the Case Back Together and Attach the Pigtail.
Now you are going to want to find a way to secure the pigtail onto the modem to prevent stressing the connection from the adapter to the board. I cut the corner out of an electrical box, drilled a hole big enough to slide the SMA connecter through and hot glued everything together.
Step 4: Connect Your Antenna
