Antenna connectors on logic board durable?
Since about one week my MacBook Pro 15" (late 2016) sometimes has a poor Wifi connection.
I run several diagnostic checks, without any result so far.
A friend of mine recently suggested that perhaps one or two of the three antenna connectors on the logic board inside the MacBook might have fallen off. This could have happened when the MacBook was accidentally dropped onto the table (just a few inches, but maybe enough ...). This is what happened to him some years ago.
Of course, wifi problems can have numerous different reasons -- but I don't want to talk about them here. I only want to eliminate a hardware/antenna issue.
So, two questions:
1. How durable are the antenna connectors on this MacBook Pro? Are they stable enough to "survive" the drop of a MacBook (or even more than one drop during it's whole lifespan)?
2. In case one or two of these connectors really fell off, how can I find out without opening the MacBook itself? Is there any diagnostic data suitable to make some kind of deduction (i.e. signal strength, transfer rate, ...) that at least one connector is broken ... or the other way around: all connectors still at their place? -- Or do you have any other ideas?
Thanks so much in advance!
Is this a good question?
