    Intel 8265NGW antenna connectors

    vkadlc22

      Hi,

      I have question regarding antenna connectors on Wireless module Intel 8265NGW. There are two connectors marked 1 AUX and 2 MAIN. We want to use 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz antenna in our design. According to recomodations on web, you should plug in 5Ghz antenna to AUX and 2.4GHz antenna to MAIN connector. But after testing with our microstrip dual 5G/2.4G antenna we found out, that better results (speed, range, Bit error rate) are achieved if antennas are switched - 2G to AUX and 5G to MAIN connector.

      Can you please provide information, what is difference between MAIN and AUX connectors and what is recomended configuration of antennas?
