PLAzmA Posted May 26, 2012 Share Posted May 26, 2012 Hey, Hopefully someone could help me out, ive recently purchased a few wifi antennas for a few projects, i modded my dir 615 (dd-wrt) to have some bigger external antennas: Yeah overkill i know... However the yagi i got (which was only cheap), the signal is pretty poor even compared to a standard 6DBi antenna. When i opened it up, the powered elements were not aligned and off as skewed angles, so i straightened them out, however the signals still not great Forgive my bad drawing. As far as i can tell the incoming connector has each wire connected to one of the elements, however there is also this small wire which is about 1 and a bit inches long which has two cores which is connected with one of the wires onto each element as well. So my questions are. Am i correct in straitening out the elements to be square? Is the antenna wired properly? If so why is this little 2 inch wire in there? Hope someone answer my question :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
