WiFi not working after screen replacement

I replaced the screen of my iPod Touch 1G successfully. Now the bright pixels are gone. But I have a new problem.

My WiFi connectivity is bad. WiFi works, but only if I am near my WiFi router.

I assume it has something to do with the gold antenna I had to take away. But I cannot find anything unusual. It's back in it's place as it was before and connected properly. All six antenna connectors are between the case and the small antenna "circuit" board.

Any ideas about what I should check?

check the wifi antenna. Had a similar problem with an iphone 3G and the antenna was simply detached.

Thanks for your feedback. What do you mean with "detached"? This gold antenna is connected as I already mentioned. What else could be detached? If the whole small board where the antenna is connected to is disconnected (I tried to test) then the digitizer doesn't work.

To make sure we're talking about the same thing: Here's a photo of the antenna:

What is the "silent button"? The one in the headphone jack to switch off the speaker? Remember that this is an iPod Touch 1G: no internal speaker (=no switch in the headphone jack), headphone jack at the bottom, no GPS, etc.
I have still no clue on what to check.

check if there is some connector similar to the one shown in the attached picture (this was taken from the iphone 3G) to which the antenna/s that exist in it connect to. Could be the antenna/s were not attached firmly to this one and that is why you are having low wifi reception.

hope this helps.

PS. in your picture in fact there is such a connector. Check that it does get the antenna connected to it IF there is any.

In the meantime it is working again. I'm not sure what it was. But one important thing I realized only now was that the case has to be closed. One part of the antenna is on the back cover and that gets connected only when the case is closed. I cleaned this part a bit, made sure it connects firmly where it should, closed the case and now it works fine again.

yes there was no proper contact between the antenna and the casing.guess the casing helps boost the reception of the wifi. same as in the iphone aerial at the bottom part.
