    bad question... but can you take off the plastic thing and pull up the antenna for farther tranmission?

    its not like a radio antenna, its simply a little reciever module (correct terminology?)
    everything u need is completely tucked away in there

    Yeah, it wouldn't look like an extendable antenna, probably wires in configuration that optimizes wifi reception. Anyone who's worked with external (homemade or commercial) wifi antennas would know what i'm talking about.

    Companies do things for a reason. Apple does a lot of R & D, and I'm sure that they have the wires in the optimal configuration.

    By messing with them, you're just asking for something to go wrong.

    I'm sure that if you took off the cover and soldered on a really good WiFi antenna then yes, it would extend the range, but it has to be one even better than the one Apple has built in to the touch/iPhone.
