You don't need a rework station to replace the antenna. however you do need one to replace the wifi chip.

is the wifi chip included when i buy the iPhone 4S Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Antenna?

No. the chip is on the logic board.

if i replace the logic board it will be fix? or can i just replace the chip?

by

You can reflow or replace the chip. You could easily ruin the iPhone doing so, so be warned. And the above is often a temporary solution. By the way, it could be the Wi-Fi circuit, not necessarily the Wi-Fi chip itself. The former can be permanently fixed with the right tools and skills.

Replacing the logic board is a more permanent solution BUT not cost effective unless you get for $30~$70 something AND you can be certain it is not suffering from any OTHER issues or stolen (locked with iCloud or black listed somewhere)

Hello,

In what country do you live?

I can do it for you for a good price if you'd like.

Or if you want to do it for yourself : you NEED a hot air station to replace the WiFi IC, replacing the antenna only wouldn't change anything.

I also live in the Philippines and I have the same problem. Thinking of just buying a replacement WiFi chip/WiFi IC. Where'd you buy yours? And how much?

I can't use my WiFi anymore and I need it. Thanks.
