The Performance Results
With the new antenna in place, we wanted to test our modification to see how much of a difference it made. To do this, we performed two tests using Airmagnet's wireless analyzer program on our laptop. The first was a local 5 foot comparison of the RF signal strength between the original hardware and the new antenna. The second test involved moving the RF analyzer 30 feet and two walls away from the Wii. We were quite shocked at the findings.
Original antenna strength at 5'
External antenna strength at 5'
Original antenna strength at 30'
External antenna strength at 30'
