Hello world..!
 
i have finally a solution for the weak wifi signal for the iPad 2,
 
i have the same problems over and over again, after replacing the digitizer or lcd, you kill het wifi antenna (stupid construction)
 
this is only a solution for the people that taking there logic board out! so not the wifi/bluetooth card
 
first of all: your iPad 2 is a big aluminum antenna,
 
the problem is your logic board, when you want to get this out for replacing the antenna you need alot of force to get i out because it''s a little glued in the middle! (near by the battery connector)
 
what happens is that you bent your logic board a little bit!
 
there is a copper sticker on the backside of the logic board, that sticker is normally pushing again the aluminum body of you iPad 2 (grousinggrouding)
there is a copper sticker on the backside of the logic board, that sticker is normally pushing again the aluminum body of you iPad 2 (grousinggrouding)
 
when you bent to much the sticker is not pushing against the frame anymore so you don't have circle or connection!
 
that is why you a have low or weak signal!
 
easy fix: just put something under the 2 srew's and metal plate that hold the logic board down (piece of paper or something else)
 
and add more force!
 
thats it..! happy repairing and cheers jorisdevet@gmail.com maby for a small donation with paypal??? other questions? feel free to ask!
