Hello,

I do PLC programing and often have to play around in circuits. While I'm usually ok, on this job I stumbled on a connector I don't recognize. I'm hoping I'm on the right thread! It's a WiFi antenna...I've never ever installed wifisystems so I'm stumped!! I usually, 99% of the time, deal with wired communication. anyway, the following links show the other identical antenna that isn't broken. (None's fault, it's in a high traffic area and badly placed.)

And while I'm here, would it cause a big loss of signal if I extended it with a lenght of wire? I know there's always loss, but I'm unfamiliar with Wireless signals.

Thanks for your help everyone!!!

Virtually all wifi components use RP-SMA connectors.
Replacing an antenna with a piece of wire will probably not work very well.
