I literally just did this damage to mine too. I’m very upset. I addedd 64GB of RAM, but I broke that connector.

Did you have success finding someone who can micro-solder?

Me too ... I am looking for help in London

This happened to me too, but it didn't pop off the board in quite the same way. The connector broke in the middle, leaving half of it in the wifi cable and half of it still on the board. STAY AWAY FROM THIS UPGRADE. This will cost a fortune to fix.

I have had a quotation from an authorised Apple agent to repair it of £214 (approx USD280).

I also asked at an Apple store. They said they wouldn’t repair it, but would replace the PCB, minimum price over £400 (USD 520).

I am living with a sub-optimal situation for the present. I use Bluetooth keyboards and track pad. Sometimes they stay connected; often the connection drops. I also use remote control VNC software that enables me to control the Mac Mini from my iPhone or iPads. It’s slower than using keyboard or track pad directly but it always stays connected.

You are very lucky! You should be able to carefully pop off the board connector from the cable then using a fine soldering iron re-attach it.

You’ll only get one chance here so you need to be sure you can do this. If not, you should find someone with the tools & skills to do it for you.

Do you mean re-attach 3 points of silver iron onto the board?

Yes, This is not easy!

It sounds like you are not sure of your self and really need to get your system to someone with very good micro soldering skills. If you mess up you could make things worse!

Has anyone obtained an estimate for the cost of this repair?

Or actually had the repair carried out? If so, what was the actual cost?

I've fixed two and had one other that the pads where torn fully off so I couldn't fix it.

The repair took about an hour and a half to desolder the connector back on. I charged $120 USD.

I just did this on mine. Hoping to get a repair estimate tomorrow, but WIFI does seem to work without the antenna plate. Perhaps just with diminished range?

Maybe you'd want to research some wifi adapters like I did the other day. Might cost only a tenth of what you may be willing to pay. You don't have to go with this one in the link.

I upgraded the Ram to mine and have the same problem. I asked my friend to hold the top part of the computer while the wires were still connected and what clearly upset me was she dropped it with zero care to answer her phone.

It wouldn’t make sense undergoing a costly repair if this is an older computer unit like my unsupported mac mini. I’d only seriously use professional help if this is one of the newest up to date models.

My recommended resolution is to just buy a USB wifi adapter for less than $20.

OR if your wifi router is close enough - use the ethernet port to connect internet directly.
