    Not sure. But I do know that I had to remove the capacitor completely to get this to work.

    It is never a good idea to short circuit a component, you can run into unexpected problems and effects by doing so, particularly when working with RF.

    Remove it to be on the safe side it only takes a couple of seconds to do so.

    I think to solder like this is easier.

    yep..I just pried mine off with some watch screwdrivers to "look under the hood"

    Dont short it out..just brute fore it off with needle nose pliers.

    Actually, -=Xploitz=- , what you "soldered" your ground onto is actually an RF connector. Just buy a cable assembly with the Hirose connector on one end and an SMA plug on the other and intergrate THAT to your card. If you plan on always using your remote antenna, unsolder the coupling cap (it's that rectangular ceramic thing) to the onboard antenna. Don't toss the cap, but just rotate it 90 degrees and leave one end attached to a solder pad so if you ever want to go "internal" again it will be there for you. Two soldering irons is usually a must for this.

    And I agree with Weedy - that's quite a hack job of soldering there. Successful microwave transitions have to be smooth - you'd be surprise at the losses that you encounter with rough soldering like that. Fortunately, we are at relatively low frequencies (for microwave, anyway), so you can get away with a hack like that.

    Well, in my defense... I only knew 2 things about soldering NIC'c with antennas.

    1. Jack
    2.Shit

    Together I knew Jack Shit about soldering my card..lol I was doing this solely based on what someone else told me on the aircrack site. So I guess I got lucky with my soldering job from what I hear. And lucky that I got such a great signal boost. Nice info to know though SLK001 about the rotation of the hirose connector. I'll remember that for my next attempt, if I ever need it. Thanks.

    Here's some additional info on your card. First, your card is set up for antenna diversity. It is split into two identical signals and sent to the two different antennas. Since you are using an external antenna, you could pick up an extra 3dB by removing the diversity components - but this I don't recommend for novices. Here's a picture of your card with the components indicated:

    (Well, I don't have "url" privileges, so you'll have to grab it yourself.)

    I will finish this once I can post pictures.

    2 more post and you can post url's.

    So your saying remove both the power splitter and the power amp?? Why remove the amp?

    The amp is not part of the diversity circuit. Grab the pic referred to in my post above. If you remove the splitter/combiner, then jumper across the input to the output (use the coupling capacitor from the now dead antenna leg), put in the hirose pigtail and presto: +3 additional decibels!

    NOTE: This is all based on what I can see from the picture of your card. I have never seen this card in person, so I am not 100% sure of this analysis. But my degree of confidence based on years of RF experience is quite high (>85%?).
