airport internal antenna deactivated if I connect an external one?? - Mac Networking

Hi! If I connect an external antenna to an airport extreme will the internal one than be deactivated? Or is the airport than using both of them? I ask because I have a very massive wall here and have only access to the WLAN on one side. If I place the external antenna on one side and let the airport on the other side will than both sides of the wall be provided with good reception? Thanks and kind regards marcus...

    Default airport internal antenna deactivated if I connect an external one??

    Hi!

    If I connect an external antenna to an airport extreme will the
    internal one than be deactivated? Or is the airport than using both of
    them?

    I ask because I have a very massive wall here and have only access to
    the WLAN on one side. If I place the external antenna on one side and
    let the airport on the other side will than both sides of the wall be
    provided with good reception?

    Thanks and kind regards

    When an AirPort Extreme Base Station is powered up, it detects an
    external antenna connection and disables the internal antenna.

    The only way to know is to try it. If the wall really blocks the signal,
    you'll probably have to put another base station on the other side of
    the wall, connect the two with an Etherent cable, and configure them for
    roaming as described in Apple's Designing AirPort Extreme Networks
    handbook.
