Dual Antennas

Hello,

On older APs such as the 1220s and 1230s is there actually any benefit to have 2 antennas on a unit versus just one?

Thanks in advance.  All replies rated

Sure there is.  Multiple antennas let's the AP do diversity which will help mitigate multipath distortion.

Hi Angel,

Just to add a link to the great info from Dan (+5 points Dan!)

Have a look this good doc, it explains the benifits quite well;
