Introduction

If your tablet will not connect to wifi, even after you have reset the router, you can use this guide to replace the wifi antenna. You should be able to easily identify which part this is, as it is a long wire attached to the motherboard. You will need tools such as a Phillips Head screwdriver with a #00 3mm screw, a spudger, plastic opening tool, as well as a soldering iron to complete the job.
