Question on functionality of multiple antennas in one Wi-Fi router
Posted on 2013-11-03
I have Ubiquity Bullet M2HP Wi-Fi acess point and it have only one external antenna. I may connect to this AP at max speed rate 65Mbps (802.11n). I guessed that is less than a passport value of this standart 150Mbps, because the Ethernet port throughput is only 100 Mbps for this device. Now I would like to buy a new router Linksys EA6700 that has 6 antennas and 1 gigabit WAN and 4 gigabit LAN. As specified it contains 3 antennas that are working on 802.11n(150Mbps) and 3 ones are on 802.11ac(450Mbps). Thereby total throughput=(3x150+3x450)=1800Mbps. But the question itself is in following:
Does this router will allow me to connect each of 6 devices to its own antenna to achieve the maximum perfomance of my wireless connections? If I am wrong about understanding the concept of 6 antennas, please explain me a fact of the matter!
