Hi, its been a long time since my last post here...

The problem I got now is the internal cable from the board of my Asus RT-N16 got broke-off, so I temporary solder an inch of a standard wire. So, is my temporary fix okay?

Wire used is 22 AWG, stranded type.

Any suggestion on where on eBay I can buy a good replacement for the internal cable for the antenna?

As long as your signal is ok - you should be fine.

Was it the middle antenna cable?

Most testing has found the middle antenna really doesn't have much impact.

Left + Right antenna's much more critical.

If you are facing the front panel of Asus RT-N16 its the right antenna...

Well your simplest test is going to be:

1) fresh reboot of the router
2) do a bunch of wireless speedtests (speedtest.net)

You want to look for good high speed transfers and also look for noise

Check the TX/RX - if the # of bad packets is very low, you should be fine

If you have a huge # of bad packets, your solder job / wire may not be good and could be introducing noise.

Details:
Received (RX) 1167 OK, no error
Transmitted (TX) 7291 OK, 10 errors

So far so good, only 0.14% error in transmit side.
