I broke the rp-sma connector on the back of the device.  What is the length of rp-sma pigtail I need to get, in order to repair it with? I see like 2in, 4in, 6in, etc. are available to buy.

Have a read here, it probably just clicked out of place - you can fix that.

oh ok. The middle pin is still there. It was a bit bent when I inspected it after "the accident". The female part (with threads that is part of the device) that the antenna screws into popped off with the antenna cable's connector. I did press it in, and it did seem to "click" in. But, its very easy to pop out. I straightened the pin, but I cant tighten the antenna connection too much, cause it'll just pop off taking the female housing with it again. I thought of applying a bit of conductive epoxy to it so it doesn't pop off so easily. However, with the antenna not tightened "too much" - the miner seems to be working fine. I just gotta make sure nothing touches the antenna cable, cause it'll probably snap right off. As long as its working, I'm not gonna mess with it.
