uConsole Mod Megathread

I don’t think anyone else has done this yet. Figured one thread for everyone to post their mods to their uConsoles would be nice to browse. Will edit this with some of my favorites if it picks up steam.


First submission – barry99705
Bright orange antenna module, presumably for use in inclement weather given it looks like a high-vis jacket had a child with the TI Nspire CX Navigator :stuck_out_tongue:

Replacement antenna.

I also had to add an external antenna to make the wifi usable.
p1
The connection rate pretty much stays at 433mbps all over my house.
p2

It fits with the modem card installed, but it makes the headphone jack inaccessible. Currently not a problem as I haven’t been able to get service.

Can u share the STL-File for printing?
I want to try it.

Has anybody considered drilling and tapping out the side screw holes to 1/4 - 36 and simply threading the antenna holder in?

Here you go. You may need to tweak it depending on the width of the base antenna nut. I used an extra wifi antenna mount from a desktop.

Thank you very much!
I’ll print it as it is. it looks good for me. i have such Antenna Kits with SMA-Cable / Connector.

I printed it internal side down. It has a tendency to split when tightening the bolt but in this version its thicker. I’ve been carrying it in my work backpack every day and nothing has broken so far.

i’m sorry, i must’ve misread

did you just say FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY THREE MEGABIT PER SECOND
ON THE UCONSOLE???

my dell laptop can’t even manage that LMFAO

Hate to burst the bubble, all that shows is that it connected to the router with the 802.11ac WiFi protocol. The ACTUAL throughput will be less than that.

come on man

tapped M6 threads into the top of the shell, and filed down the bottom brass hex bit so the case would sit flush. little dab of locktite and she’s good to go. not as nice as some of the 3d printed jobs earlier mind you.

I really think Clockwork messed up with the stock wifi. they should have tapped M6 holes for the SMA connectors into the case and then let us source our own antennae

(i’ve left the old 4g antenna since ive not been able to test the module yet)
