x6x wifi booster

#1 Post by vavet » Tue Apr 17, 2018 5:05 pm

The hole where the modem port used to be, was getting on my nerves, so I decided to make use of it :mrgreen:

The idea is to make a port for connecting external antenna. I have a weak wifi signal in bedroom so a stronger antenna wouldn't harm.

I used:
(big pics ahead)

1. intel 6300 card with 3 antenna ports
2. a cable from a dead router with external antenna connector and wifi card connector.

3. standard antenna from a router or pc wifi card (ebay, aliexpress etc.)
4. a thingy I made to hold the external connector
