Re: Which the most powerful wireless PCI card?
For 802.11n, It's not more antennas that give the extended range. It's the protocol itself. I'm still not into wireless-N yet, so I don't know the details. But IIRC, they are using MIMO which is using beam forming techniques using multiple antennas, so in this sense, I am not sure if the number of antennas has to be fixed or you can just add them later. Current Wireless-N devices mostly come with 3 fixed antennas.
