Wifi not working after antenna replacement

I just replaced my wifi antenna after a screen replacement. Thought I put it in okay but still not getting wifi on the ipod. Does the screw on the cable do anything? I lost the screw but replaced it with another. Maybe it needs to make contact with the metal piece below? Any help appreciated, thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I figured out that the antenna that I bought actually does work...it just REALLY REALLY SUCKS and has virtually no range whatsoever.


I have the same issue right now, i've tried 3 new wi-fi cables, restoring the iPod, hard reset, etc.. still no luck... On the other hand I do get wi-fi if I'm standing right next to the router in my shop... If i can find a solution I'll let you know!

For both of you, I would ensure that the cable is ran correctly. If I remember correctly the back metal panel enhances the power of the antenna...

Just a thought!

Good luck!
