I have installed this NIC in an intel NUC and have attached connectors for external antennas. On this NIC, will damage occur if it is operated without antennas connected? If antennas must be connected, can I use terminators and if so, will 50 ohm terminators work? If not, and termination is needed, can you please make a recommendation?
Please note that for NUCs it should be necessary to have the supported network adapter. Here you have an example of how to connect the Wireless antennas. Please Check post 3:
I do have a supported adapter. My question is: If I am not using the wireless adapter that I have installed, do the antenna connections need terminators? Clarification: the wireless adapter is installed, but I am using the ethernet WIRED connection instead.
I just want to confirm, that if I disconnect the antennas is is not going to damage the transmitters on the wireless NIC; is this correct? Is this still true if the NIC is left enabled in the system?
