My WI-Fi tower antenna arrived without the cd disc for using it. Is it possible to find this through your contacts? Will appreciate any help,

There is a easy no solder solution too, use a MS-156 male plug to RP-SMA female cable and plug into the CON1 connector on the wi-fi adapter. I bought mine from this outfit and it works great.

Does it have to be an antenna from a wireless router to work or is there room for innovation something like an old satellite antenna.

This is a family site. I would think that image text in Step 5 is offensive and adds no value to your instructable.
