Over the last few years there has been a lot of talk about the benefits of 802.11n and one of the key benefits this new standard gives us: MIMO. MIMO stands for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output. This directly relates to the amount of antennas an access point has – and the important thing to remember is that there is a distinction between a transmitting antenna vs. a receiving antenna. Confused yet? It gets worse. The numbers don’t have to match up. Depending on the Access Point (AP), there can be many combinations – starting with 1x1 (transmit is first) to 2x1 to 2x2 and all the way up to 4x4 – though I am unaware of any 4x4s out there.
