Wifi Question after Digitizer replacement

Ipad II

Issue: Digitizer Replacement / wifi issue.

I replaced the Digitizer on an Ipad 2. When I went to test the wifi I realized I had ruined the Wifi antenna. I replaced the wifi antenna. I don't have the ipad completely shut, just close to shut. The digitizer is resting on the rest of the Ipad. The Wifi isn't working right now after replacing the antenna. I seem to remember that most apple products tend to have mechanisms to prevent it from working 100% when open. For example when I replaced the digitizer on my Ipad I the wifi didn't work until the digitizer was firmly sealed onto the ipad. Does the ipad need to be completely shut to get the wifi to work?

I'm afraid to shut it because the digitizer was hard to get off.

When I say the Wifi doesn't work I mean it's not detecting any networks at all. I'm at an office building, there should be at least 15 networks.

does the Wifi Antenna need to stick to the digitizer at all? Or is screwing it in enough?
