Missing small white chip or inductor on the motherboard.

The result is no wifi and loosing gsm network only 2 bars of it.

I have opened my iphone because after drop down i've lost my wifi at all and the GSM signal is very poor and it's loosing it without or with 3G connection. I've noticed that a small tiny white chip is missing from the motherboard upside near to the golden wifi antenna.

Can you tell me the name of the chip so I can buy it from somewhere and to fix it
