    So I finally decided to mod my wifi range extender with the antennas I received from FPVLR. Everything went smooth, so I thought. Now I can't get my iPad or iPhone to see the SSID (Phantom_XXX). It's not broadcasting. The power light comes on, but the system light never comes on. I double checked the antenna connections and they are fine. I also used two different antennas just in case i had a defected antenna and no luck. Any guess as to what else to look for? Thanks.

    Make sure your Bird is turned on, as that is where the SSID comes from.

    The wifi extender will broadcast without the Phantom being on. The Phantom camera puts out a hidden SSID. If the extender system light is not flashing, regardless of whether the bird is on, the extender is likely dead.
