Broken wifi antenna - replace with a usb device

merlmerl Posts: 19WeTek Community Member
I pulled the wire out of my wifi antenna when I opened the unit. I put it back but it never worked. I just wanted to mention that I plugged in a cheapo USB wifi adapter, chipset Realtek 8191 and it just worked. It comes up as wlan0 in LibreELEC -> CONNECTIONS.

As a side effect I notice that the signal is much stronger on this USB device and it can see more wireless networks. If you have weak signal issues it might be something to consider.

    how did you get it to register? I have attached a dongle with the same chipset but nothing seems to happen.

    @Badger Are you sure chipset is the same?

    Thinking of upgrading to a 5GHz capable dongle. Anyone know which AC dongle to look for?
