If you ordered a RG351P during the first week it was available (in mid-September 2020), it’s possible your copy shipped with an internal WiFi antenna. Anbernic then learned that there was some audio crackling in the speakers when WiFi was enabled. To remedy the issue, Anbernic now ships units without an antenna, which is a shame because the built-in WiFi option is one of my favorite features of the device. If you have one of those early models, this video will show you how to easily fix the audio issues with a bit of aluminum foil and electrical tape.

You will need a hex H1.5 or torx T5 screwdriver to open the back of the case. Note that in the video I referred to the WiFi antenna cable as a “power cable” by mistake!
