MR86 with MA-ANT-25 antennas

Hi everyone,

 

I'm looking to buy MR86 APs with MA-ANT-25 antennas. These antennas are said to be dual-band. Does that mean that I can connect only one antenna to my MR86 with one connector in 2.4GHz and one in 5GHz ? Would that be an issue ?

 

Thank you for your help,

@antmich MR86 APs have four dual-band antenna ports (and therefore do not have 2.4 or 5GHz labels).  None of these ports should be left unconnected because all four ports will always be active even if one radio is disabled. MR86 APs should have all four antenna ports connected, and with the same type of antennas with the same orientation.
