AP MIMO with single Antenna connected

HI to all, 

can I install MIMO AP (AP204) just with one antenna  connected on a single RF connector?


If yes, what is the impact on the performance.


Thanks for your support and cooperation.


Best Regards

Re: AP MIMO with single Antenna connected

Mimo gets its performance from multiple antennas.  You would be risking significantly poor performance.

You also must provision the AP for single-chain. The user guide has some details on that as well as which antenna connector must be used.
