    Hey, first of, thanks for the clear cut and to the point instructions on how to mod the routers with internal antenna.

    What i am confussed about is those resistors/capacitors (SMD) which were removed. I don't understand the concept here. I tried removing those capacitors on my Asus RT-n13ub1 router and it made the signal worse. Then when i soldered them back on, it worked fine. Same applies to my TPlink router. If i remove those smd things to bypass signal directly to the controlling chip, it does not work.

    Please guide me as to where i am wrong, or perhaps if it is device dependent that those smd needs to be there ?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is it possible to tell which antennae carries the 'home' network signal as opposed to the publicly available one?

    the public WiFi uses the same hardware... you can disable public WiFi within the routers settings
