Antenna Replacement

Are the antennas on my R6400 AC1750 Router replaceable?  They don't want to unscrew, and I don't want to break them trying too hard.

Re: Antenna Replacement

Probably not. There would be an obvious knurled section if the antennas could be unscrewed from an antenna socket.

 

Manufacturers avoid additional antenna sockets because of RF loss, risk of loosing certification as it allows to install high gain antennas, and last but not least cost.
