Hello everyone,

I'm not sure if it's the right place to post this, feel free to guide me somewhere else.

I am working with large touch screen and an issue I have is that the cable for the wifi break because our custo
mer twist the antenna bolt.
So i'm trying to know what's the name of the plug on the motherboard that's used to connect the wifi and if you have any idea where i could buy a "flat and sticky" wireless antenna. Or just a remplacement of the same type.

I believe the 2 "gold plates" next to the wifi "plug" can be used to solder an antenna wire but i would rather use the "plug".

Here are some pictures of what i'm talking.

Thanks,

I posted this question on 3 differents forums so i'll share the different answers.

Try searching for 'internal-wifi-antenna'
Or
"laptop wireless antenna"

"The proper name is Hirose U.FL connector, but they're also called Ultraminiature coax or UMCC connectors"

"I think its called Pigtail. It's in all modern laptops. Note that the cable it terminate is super thin coaxial. It's extremely hard to splice, so I often just replace whole cable and solder it on the antenna side, or transplant entire plug-cable-antenna assembly."
