220w ago - Today Sony's Eric Lempel has clarified Justin Cooney of SCEA's statement from just before the weekend.
Cooney initially said that PSP Minis will drop WiFi Multiplayer, DLC and Software Update support.
However, speaking to Destructoid.com (linked above) Lempel reassured concerned users with the following statement, to quote:
"So you can patch Minis, but we won't have multiplayer functions in the beginning. Basically, to get these developers on board, and to make it easier to test and get it through the pipeline, we won't be allowing that functionality for the first stage of Minis.
It's something we will consider in the future, he added, referring to the posibility of game updates and multiplayer in future PSP Mini titles."
221w ago - Sony has revealed that PSP Minis won't support wireless multiplayer functionality, downloadable content or software updates.
SCEA senior account manager Justin Cooney said that the decisions had been made in a bid to "accelerate the approval process" of games for the company's handheld.
To quote: "When you look at it from a testing perspective, you have to do more QA. [Allowing those features] would defeat the purpose of having a dedicated service for smaller content. It increases the barriers," he told Gamasutra.
Cooney noted that the QA process for PSP Minis takes around three to five days, compared to up to fourteen days for regular PSP games.
Announced at Gamescom, PSP Minis will be exclusive to the PlayStation Network and have a 100MB size limit. 15 titles will be made available at launch on October 1 in Europe / PAL territories and the US, coinciding with the release of the PSP Go.

To quote in part, roughly translated: Good, after several days of work and investigation, I have been able to replace one of the internal antennas wifi of ps3 (ANT0-WLAN) by 9 an external antenna of dbi, connected through connecting SMA, implanted in the back part of the console.
To comment that once with the materials in my power, and with the clear things on the way to act, this mod has not taken to me but of 30 minutes. Including the disassembling, implantation of the connector and final assembly of the machine.
We begin by the necessary materials:

2. a Pigtail UFL to SMA female of 30 cm. (Between 10 and 15 Euros)
3. an antenna with male connection SMA; it has of all the powers, from 5 dbi to 50. (from 5 Euros)
