Replacing the antenna for your wireless adapter may be subject to country specific legal regulations similar to those ruling the replacement of wireless adapters:
Our best recommendation will be to contact your computer manufacturer (OEM) for further information, and if possible, the replacement part."In the USA, Canada, EU, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan end-users are not authorized to replace wireless antennas because these countries regulate the antenna, which must be certified together with the adapter.For all other countries, the end-user may use a replacement antenna of their choice assuming they use the same type, and the same or lower antenna gain.Intel® recommends contacting the manufacturer, vendor, or place of purchase about availability and support for Intel® Wireless Adapter upgrades. Laptop manufacturers must meet regulatory requirements to determine if the Intel® Wireless Adapter or antenna can be installed in your system."We hope this information helps.
