Can I use only one antenna port on a two-antenna access point
Posted on 2014-11-16
I have a 2,5 km WIFI bridge, that has stopped working after 6 years. It was run by Gateway GN-AP01G (802.11g) with one antenna output and a yagi antenna connected to it. The same setup on the other side of the bridge.
I need to buy a similar setup fast, and D-Link DAP-1360 may do the work. But it has TWO antenna connectors. What will happen if I only use one of them? Is it going to be ok, if I choose to do use only 802.11g (not 802.11n) ? Is one of the connectors "main" and the other one "aux" , or is it sending the same thing on both when in G-mode?
