Firstly, this is my first instructable and english is not my native language. Because of that please forgive my faults.
Well, tis instructable is about how to add an antenna to a mini wifi receiver. It's not very hard but you will need some basic abilities like soldering. Shall we start!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Opening Your Receiver.
I bought this one from eBay it was around 5$. And i accidently pulled it as hard. And i realize that it can open and cloase. Thats all. And just try to pull it. If you can't open it with just pulling, try some sharp materials.
Step 2: Find the Antenna of Your Receiver.
Well it should be something like a green cable which is looking like "s" letter.
Step 3: Engraving the Antenna
if you find the antenna, now you should engrave it to solder it. I used a needle to engrave. If you want you can use a knife or a sharp thing. Just engrave it until you see the yellow or white metal.
Step 4: Soldering!
Soldering to a little place can be hard because of that be carefull while soldering. Do not hurt yourself, also do not hurt the receiver.
Step 5: Make a Hole for New Antenna.
make a hole to plastic. Now here is the thing that you shouldn't do: Dont make hole with your solder machine because it doesnt smell good and its a little bit boring to clean it from soldering machine.
Step 6: Prepare It for Closing.
Well i used hot glue to stabilize solder inside. But after i realized that i used too much hot glue for this. And i tried to make a few millimeters longer.
Step 7: Finish!
It can be a little bit ugly but do not worry about that because its working 3 times better than it was.
