My Surf SOHO MK3 fell from a table and landed on the floor. Now, the antenna connector for Antenna C is loose. That is, the RP-SMA connector is not firmly connected to the device, but is still sticking out.
It’s softly connected to something inside the device: if I give it a little twist, it wants to rotate back to a neutral position. So I wonder if this means it’s still functional (i.e. electrically connected). That might be true if it’s connected to coaxial cable inside of the device. Or, if the connector was soldered to the board and broke off, it might just be a flexible piece of RF shielding that is holding it now. In that case it would no longer be working.
I’d love to open the case and see what’s going on inside, but I haven’t figured out a way to do that. Does anybody know what it looks like in there?
Also, if Antenna C is no longer working, what’s the implication for the functioning of the Wifi?
