AX200 with only one antenna (Blueooth issues)

Sadly my laptop only has a single antenna.  Should the antenna hooked up to to the main or aux jack? Asking as I noticed that while the wifi side works for the most part (can be sometimes slow to initially connect), the Bluetooth part is just about completely death. I assumed that the main jack would be the one to use, but I read something about Bluetooth being on the aux jack. Thought I would ask before dissembling the laptop a third time to try it.

It should be connected to the Main pin (are the pin and connector even compatible? I would think not). Bluetooth will be useless unless you add another antenna wire yourself.

Thanks for the solution. That's a bit annoying, but I'll take the much increased speed over the original 802.11n card that it replaced.

You can always purchase an antenna wire and add it to the laptop...
