    Can you post a link to the web site from which you have purchased the plug n play kit? We need to see what is in the kit before giving any advise.

    The only useful part of ebay url is the item number. I created a short url "www.ebay.com/itm/xxxxxx" where xxxxx is the item number i got from your post

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/141974995112

    The antenna connects to the Filter which connects to ProStick.I am surprized someone told you to connect antenna to Wifi.

    Now tell us did you write an OS image on the microSD card? If yes, which one. If no, then do you know which pre-installed OS was there?

    EDIT
    Ok, found from sellers description:

    "Raspberry 3 Model B Comes with pre loaded micoSD card with PiAware, all you have to do is Claim your device and you are ready (must register an account with FlightAware, internet connection is required)."

    Guessing as sold as plug n play it's a preconfigured FA image to upload to them and not have a claimed/associated ID until manually done.

    There won't be any visibility as made in their favour

    Go to following address and follow instructions.

    https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/claim

    To claim a Station number for RPi, your computer should be on same local network (router) as the Pi.

    Did you configure WiFi SSID and password in th RPi? If not shutdown RPi, slip out microSD card, slip into card reader of laptop (requires adapter), then open the drive named boot or piaware. You will see a file "piaware-config.txt". Open the file and scroll down till you find:

    wireless-ssid MyWifiNetwork
    password s3cr3t

    Replace MyWifiNetwork with the name of your WiFi (aka the SSID of your local network)

    Replace s3cr3t with the password of your WiFi


    Save the file, eject microSD card from laptop, slip into RPi and boot. Your RPi will be connected to your network through WiFi.

    Alternatively you can connect your RPi to network using a network cable connected at one end to RPi, and other end to router.
