after disasembly wifi is not working anymore

I dissassembed the iphone because the display did not act on any finger movments.

During assembly a little latch broke of the antenna sticker. the latch which broke is connected to the antenna and under the frame screw on the left of the dock connector. After assembling everything. the display is working and as well the gsm but not the wifi. It does not find any wifi anymore. I tried to weld back the latch but still no wifi. what could it be?

Why is the orange yello antena connected with the screw to the metal frame?

Help would be apreciated

the frame is a part of the antenna. thats why it is connected

how did you solder the cable to the antenna connector?

there are 2 wires inside that cable!

I took a piece of aluminium foil and soldered it to the orange antenna sticker right above where the right skrew next to the dock connector is. So that I'm able to have the aluminium foil under the skrew hole of the frame. I did not do anything with the white cables. This are little coax cables isn't it? Is it that you mean they have 2 wires? the antenna sticker going under the right skrew is just a foil, or?

Thanks for your help


yea, they are koax cables and the antenna sticker is a copper foil. don't make it to large, the size is calculated to fit the frequencies
