    hello guys,
    i need your help,

    i did swap my wrt54gs v4 for a wrt54gs v1

    but when i went to set it all up today i noticed that the right antenna is twisted the bit the black things screw in at the back it isnt majorly twisted but it is twisted to the kind of point the right black antenna wont screw in more than half then gets stuck on the back of the routers casing,,

    here is a few picture sorry camera isnt great but u can just see that its a bent bent to the left

    I would just try and straightne it out. Hold the body of the connector and screw the antenna on and try to push it back into place.

    Otherwise, just use the left antenna and set both TX and RX to it.

    It's really not going to make much differene with only 1 antenna, and in some cases a single antenna is better.

    so what u are saying is screw the black antenna on to it as far as it will go and then try to push it back in to place ?????

    dont that silver bit unscrew or something so i could put it back on straight ????

    My wrt4gs v2.1 has the same issue. I left it alone because it seems it was install crooked and you might break something by trying to straighting it.

    I have not opened up mine in a while, but if you take the board completely off of the casing you should be able to resolder it easy enough. (screws hold it in so look for it don't force it.) I guess it depends on how confident you are on doing it, but should be easy enough if you are careful. I wouldn't just twist it though, you might snap it( it is the one that is connected through the board and not by a wire too so you could make it worse. Or just hollow out the hole in the case a little bit.
