Hi guys thought i would get your opinion on this, i have just received
2x DCMA-82 Wistron 400mw mini pci cards, and they have 2 antenna ports
main and aux.
I read somewhere in a pre release technical specifications pdf that if
the aux port was unused it had to be terminated with a 50 ohm
resistor. None of the current specification sheets mention this, and
there has been some confusion between people on some forums that i
have been reading on weather this is really necessary or not?
I have already made the modification on one of the chips, by ripping
off the smd mmcx port and soldering a 50 ohm resistor across the
terminals and it is being detected fine, but am unsure if i should
bother on the other.
I was also curious if anyone else has done this to any other Wistron
cards such as the cm9 or any other card for that matter?
