Connecting an Antenna - km782 - 04-13-2019

The signal strength is pretty weak so I would like to add an antenna.  I thought that the connector was u.fl so I ordered this:

https://www.amazon.com/HUACAM-5-8GHz-Dual-Band-Wireless-Network-Antenna/dp/B06WD7FZV4/


However, when I pulled the old wires off of the module and tried to connect the new one, the connector is too big.  Is the connector on the WIFI/BT module not u.fl?  What do I need to get to connect to this board?

Thank you

Actually, now I'm wondering if the connector on the module is w.fl?

The PINE-A64 Wifi/BT module connector is the U.FL type. Based on your Amazon link, my may received the iPEX type which is smaller connector than U.FL.
