Well after a lot of trail and error, I found a laptop wifi antenna that improves this tablets wifi signal atleast by an average of 10 DB. I.E. I get three to four bars now rather than one to two bars before. That's the seller and part I bought, it is beyond simple to open up the tablet and easier replacing the antenna.

If this board is not dead and some one needs a video walk through I might make one

I haven't really noticed any problems with wifi on my A500. Can you just take any old laptop's wifi antennas and put them in? I have tons of old laptops collecting dust.

It should work as long as they are the same connector from the link i posted. But results will vary, this was my third antenna i bought.
Didn't help when none if the vendors could give me db rating.
