I am guessing that what you

I am guessing that what you want to do is use an antenna that does not have 3 leads on it.  To disable an antenna port on the access point you will need to do the following:

  • Go to the wireless tab
  • Select 802.11a/n/ac in the Access Points section on the left
  • Hover over the blue arrow on the right for the AP you want to disable the antenna port on and select configure
  • In the antenna properties section un-check the antenna ports you want disabled
  • Repeat this process in the 802.11b/g/n Access Points section to disable the port for both radios

I hope this helps.

John
