i've got a WRT300N 1.0 and one of its antenna broke on the plastic. the other one stands up just fine.

i'm wondering if any of you have a antenna that you don't need thats exactly like the one on the WRT300N 1.0

and could replace my broken plastic antenna with something that'll fit and stand straight up. i hate wasting a router.

I would actually like to replace the existing WRT300N antennas with better antennas.

Can you tell me if the antenna is removable, or does it look like the antennas in this picture?

Anyway, a 5 pack of these antennas cost $4.99 USD.

Thanks for your guide. I have a few questions regarding the pigtail cable you used.

1. Did you solder, or did you used the onboard connectors?

2. What kind of connector is it, U.FL (Hirose)?

i'll bump this thread to indicate its still active.

any of those antennas look nice, i need two, if anyone would like to fix my WRT300N v1, just replace the antennas is all, i would pay you for the antennas, work, and shipping to and from. you set your own price. please shoot me a PM if you'd help. i could possibly try a repeater bridge with it once fixed.

It's soldered, as the original hookup, no need of connectors.
