Did you reconnect the antenna?

Looking at the photos in crackberry forum it's the white antenna cable, antenna is top RH corner as you look at the screen. There may be an antenna component inside the back (according to ifixit)  but the cable terminates in a little pcb possibly marked 3G.  Blue cable seems to be BT and grey is GPS. The TI chip supports all three functions, single cable for each. That is why 802.11n is only 65mbps.

 

Come back if that's not correct.

 

Thanks to crackberry and ifixit if it is.

Re: very weak wifi signal after i change the battery

i dont know what happened but i think i correctly connected all the antenna wires. I dont think that the wifi chips is dead because i have bluetooth and GPS. th only problem is that, i only have a weak wifi reception not the same before i change the battery.
