Does the order of 1 and 2 cable matter with WiFi?

I bought an Intel 8265 WiFi chip.

Does it matter which order the connectors go in?

I currently have the 1 cable plugged into the 2 slot, and visa versa.

Will it make a difference?

I heard that one wire is 5 GHz and the other is 2.4 GHz, so you could be slowing it down by plugging a 5 GHz cable into a 2.4 Ghz slot.

Hello mattmathews,

 

 

Thank you for joining this Intel Community.

 

 

I understand that you would like to get more information about the step-by-step installation instructions for your Intel® Wireless adapter. I would like to assist you.

 

 

First, I would like to know if you bought the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 Desktop Kit. This will help us provide accurate information about this.
