Have you lost your wireless antenna from the back of your network card? No problem! Make one from scratch using some solder (or pliable wire) about 15 centimeter (5.9 in), and a thumbtack. The wire will act as the 'antenna' while the thumbtack will secure it in place

Steps

1Grab some solder (preferably thick) or some bendy wire/solder and wrap it around the point of a thumbtack. this will provide you with a small loop about that same size as the inner 'pin' on the back of your wireless card.

2Bend the wire at a 90 degree angle just under the loop you just created. this will allow for easy insertion when you place it around the inner 'pin'

3Place the wire around the pin, and wrap the remaining wire around the outside 'threads' where you would normally screw in the antenna.

4Insert the thumbtack in between the inner 'pin' and the small loop you made. this is to ensure the inner pin is always in contact with the solder.

5The other end of the wire/solder can be wrapped around any cable from the back of your computer to enhance wireless reception.
