unfortunately most home end router's antenna do not come off or unscrew.

most of those uses that come unscrew uses RP-SMA connector

if you really want to use external antenna. you have to solder to the board

well that's bad news. first because I already bought an antenna, but mainly because my hopes for better signal are lost.

I am positive that I read that its antenna was detachable though. are you absolutely sure that it cannot be done in any other way than soldering the new one on?

I'm pretty sure.

If you can unscrew then not. Simple deal

Hello,

i discovered the same one.

for me is it very unfortunate, because i brought the dg834g v4 and the ANT24O5 new. according to the "antenna guideline" on the german netgearsite, its possible to use the dg834g with the antenna. there is no reference, that the antennas of the v4 are not removeable.

so, which one of the home-routers have an unscrewable antenna?

thanks a lot
