Solved!

Is there two antennas installed in this PV so I can install a dual back wifi card?

I have a Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n wifi adapater in this unit.   I want to make use of my 5G network and need a dual band wifi card.  Does this unit come with two antennas so this is possible without installing a second one myself?

Thank you for the additional information, @Skyscope.

 

I misread your question.  It sounded to me like you wanted to know if you could add a second antenae to the existing card to make it dual band.

The answer to your question is, No!  The antenae normally come with the wifi adapter.

@Skyscope, welcome to the forum.

 

You have to buy a new AC wifi wireless adapter.  There is no way to add dual band to the one that you have installed.
