Re: metal case

i would use a pigtail and external antenna ... you even could locate the antenna then a bit away from the pi and if needed use a directional antenna pointing to your router (just in case you have the router a bit at a distance)

cut the antenna element (sharpie) and solder ground and hot of your pigtail to the pcb ... mount sma (or rp-sma) socket to the case ... and connect a wifi antenna there

depending if your antenna has sma or reverse sma select the correct socket (on wifi antennas reverse sma is quite common)

After a little digging I have found the antenna. Now the question is do I try a pigtail or cut a slit in the case at the antenna location?
