Router antenna hack (two to one)? Answered
I'm in the process of buying a router to add custom firmware such as ddwrt or tomato. Some of the routers have two antennas but I'd like to use just one in order to use it with a high gain antenna. I understand that some routers have a way to disable one antenna in their firmware but I will be using custom firmware. I also understand if one antenna is not disabled in software both antennas needs matching antennas so impedance matches. If impedance insn't matched antenna would not work for long.
My question is could I not just bridge one of the antennas on the pcb to the other in order to have matching impedance?
