I have recently acquired a used AX86U so that I can run it in mesh with my AX88U. Once I screwed all 3 antennas to the router, I noticed that 2 of the antennas were loose and not tight fit like the other one (it's where the base of the antenna meets the long aerial) I'm sure this would not affect performance and is purely a cosmetic issue, however I was wondering if there is anyway that this could fixed?
