Am getting 2 conflicting answers to which is the correct wifi antenna module for my Huawei P8 lite-L21
both are parts of the phone, but one must be correct
have attached pics of both parts, need to know the correct one

Hi wave129, had a look round for you, this should be the bottom part pictured for your model. Can i ask what the problem was with the original module as i see this is a common issue with the device and a 'wipe cache partition' should hopefully fox this?

Thank you for your info
The Fault is that the WiFi does not list any surrounding wifi including my own
Did the usual software checks, so it was either the antenna or the actual wifi chip
Problem is that the chip is on the main board , to replace that looks like a nightmare
And is a specialist job with the miniature soldering, so will try the antenna first,
Seems to be a common fault

Hi Wave129, it does appear to be a problem a few people have come across, though not one i personally have dealt with or had customers mention.

If the 'wipe cache partition' didn't do the trick then you are right, may be worth trying to replace the antenna, if this doesn't work then it may be worth sending the device off to someone that can check over all the boards and potentially do the micro soldering, if this is salvageable.

Have changed the antenna board and still no wifi, I understand the cost to change the chip is a lot more than the phone is worth, shame really as the phone is as new with all the accessories, bloody annoyed.
