Antennas broken
« on: August 29, 2020, 06:09:59 PM »

My DIR-880L router has a broken antenna. Right now only two antennas installed.

I tried to fix it. So I opened it.The problem is the wire is too short and I have no way to solder it.

Please advise where can I get a replacement.

Cable: CIK, 100M;
Main Router: OpenWRT on a VM
AP 1: DIR-880L - DD-WRT
AP 2: Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH2 OpenWRT
Switch: D-link DGS-1008D
Switch: Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH

You might look for any kind of replacement router wifi antenna online. I highly doubt D-Link carries these in stock. The connector is standard wifi antenna screw on so you could basically put most any similar wifi antenna on with the same screw on connector. Or find a used 880L on fleabay or amazon to use for parts.
