Doing The External Antenna Mod Need Help...

3 replies 90 views Edited Apr 18, 2012

I'm doing the antenna mod and I have a quick question about the tiny screws. WTH are they called. I have my ps3 almost apart except for these tiny screws. I need to run to the hardware store for the tool i need but i have no idea what they are called? or what size? Any help would be appreciated.

OK, the guy at the hardware store said "the tamper-resistant screws" are called "security-Torx screws". Bought a set for $20 and I just finished putting it all back together. My connection signal went from 22% 1.5mb/Down - 640K/Up to 92% 10mb/Down 3.5mb/Up. Shouldn't the download/upload speeds be 54Mbs for wireless-G? or is this my ISP speed. I have 12mb down and 5mb/up from ISP. I'm very happy i did this. Best Mod Ever!

Internet Connection Test shows your internet connection bandwidth, not your wireless connection bandwidth to your wireless router unless your wireless connection is too weak. It will be an underestimate compared to results on a PC from a nearby testing server.
