Soldering an N-type connector to WUSB54G

    Recently I took apart my WUSB54g network adaptor to install an N type connector so I could hook up a cantenna to it. Within the adaptor there is a very small gauge coax cable that is used as built in antenna. I soldered the inner conductor of the coax the inner pin on the N-connector. Just wondering if I also need to solder the outer jacket of the coax to the base of the metal N-Connector? If anyone has any advice for me it would be greatly appreciated.

    -Thanks

    If you want to add an sma antenna to the WUSB54G without removing the case, you'll still have to take it out of the case, drill a hole in the case for the SMA connector to stick out of and solder the SMA connector to the wire that was attached to the original antenna.
