Well I did order a PCI N type card and has the antenna already so I will return the USB one eatherway since I know that I will have better connection since I use to own a PCI type card. But before was a G type.
But I could of cource send the PCI back since maybe it's just because the cable is slow since alot of people are using it. But I don't know why my notebook loads websites faster but I noticed the download speeds are the same.
No.... USB micro-adapters like that are 1x1:1. There are USB adapters with antennas though.
The 802.11n standard supports 2 frequencies and up to 4-streams. If you want the best reception and best throughput, you have to check what the wireless adapter and the access point supports.
