Single antenna on MIMO AP

Hi,

can I install MIMO AP just with one antenna? I heard when antenas have nonoverlaping coverage bad things may happen..

Typicall usecase: I need wireless bridge between two buildings it makes huge price difference to have two patch pannels or four patch pannels.

 

Thanks,

      V.D.

Yes you can.  If the Mimo antenna has a dual connector, you should be fine.  The "overlapping coverage"  warning is for a single-connector antenna.

Re: Single antenna on MIMO AP

OK, and now I want to use single-connector antenna - do I need to disable HT on this AP or how should I do it safely?
