I never installed this type of antenna and never used Wi-Fi before.
Maybe someone know way how this small connector install...
 

 
It's not like this...
 

 
This type...

 

What should I do, to push, to push and twist in same time, on witch direction, to screw only?
Searching for answer I never found on whole internet and in ASUS exaplanation, I figure out many people broken their connector and need to order new from EBAY. Because of that I decide to stop until find answer.
 
ASUS Change that I think with X99 and now connector is smaller. This is design of retarded person.
I mean I would like to met such persons to ask him what was wrong with connector as on plastic antennas and why he had desire to complicate.
In manual you will find place where we need to install Antenna but not how, and broken connectors explain me that other people had problems as well, probably trying to twist very short wire and she fall out from connector.

    Looks like the newer ones just push into place. You should feel it lock.

    Looks like to me someone forgot to install the screws to tighten it down if you ask me.

    Yep. I didn't even know ASUS was doing it this way until seeing this thread. It's really stupid. There's a reason enterprise equipment use screw on connections...
