On our Hotspot access point somebody broke the antenna, so the wireless card was on for some time with a broken omni antenna. After we replaced the antenna with a new one but (as I was not there) they forgot to turn off the routerboard (mini PCI) while replacing the antenna.
Now the wireless is working, but the signal is a bit strange ( i think that it was better before). Is my mini PCI card now damaged?
I mean if the card is running with a broken antenna, and if they replaced the antenna without turning the router off, should i fear that the card is now damaged? And how can i check it?
