    Hi all. Before I start taking this thing apart, because I am getting intermittent WiFi transmission and reception from it, can anyone tell me what I should expect to find when I remove that heat shrink from the antenna? Is there anything else inside there, other than what feels like a cylindrical metal tube and the malleable wire that is coming from the device (a wifi dvr miniature camera). It appears rather fragile, so I am expecting a loose connection is the cause of my connection issues.

    You'll probably find a piece of coax with the braid pulled back over the outer insulation.
