Multiple Antennas! Faster Connection?
I hope someone can help me with a technical explanation.
In my house we have a Wireless Router. I was wondering if i would use two wireless antennas on one computer and connect both of them with the router, would my internet speed go up.
What happens in 802.11? I know the technology uses a backoff algorithm.
Is there a way to make that time shorter in any way to get faster acces then the other users?
And if so... each antenna would have his own IP adress, with simular gateway ofcourse (cause only got 1 router) BUT how does my internet explorer knows what to use?
I hope someone can help me with this.
Two antennas are for "space diversity". One antenna may be blocked, but the other antenna sees clearly.
I use one antenna on my AP for indoor use; a second antenna points at the motorhome in the back yard. This is not considered best practice, but Oh Well.
No speed advantage.
