Could work, but possibly not needed. I have a mod in mind but need to know exactly what points on the wifi module to solder some wire to. This can then be either looped around the inside of the case, or if you drilled a hole in the outside of the casing, the wire could end with an antenna connector to connect an external hi-gain wifi antenna.
Use a red bull can covered in aluminium.

If that is the antenna, no wonder wifi reception is lousy! >
pretty sure its that trace on the bottom right, the ones with the holes.?

For some reason I can pick up and access a wifi signal ok on my HTC mobile phone and the M001 in exactly the same location, It wont pick up the signal at all. Id love some instruction on where to drop a bit of solder on a wire to get that elusive signal.
Wifi reception on mine seems fine, may be somthing too do with the location of the wifi module more than the antenna its self, take a look at my dissasembely video, you will see what I mean.

Um... the M001 dosnt have a USB stick. ???
I have to say that my wifi reception is pretty good with my m001. Pretty much the same as most other wifi devices. Based on the unit's design, I wonder if the issues are just poor quality wifi usb sticks... instead of adding an antenna, have you considered just replacing the usb stick with a better quality stick that has the same chipset.

the gold plate at the bottom is the antenna and *should* be sufficient. The wires at the top are the usb connection (4 wires), this is actually a PCB made for an USB stick.Which is the anntenna? one of the 4 wires at the top or the gold plate at the bottom?I don't know about anyone else but it is not clear to me. Can you clue me in?
From Aimless Teardown:http://slatedroid.co....php?topic=9.30You can see the Wifi antenna..
