Re: Where to get most recent Rev. router?
said by Smith6612:I just opened up an old Rev F.
Quick question on this: Doesn't the Rev. F have the internal antenna soldered to one of the radio connections like the Rev. D and older have?
There is only one antenna lead, connected to the external antenna. The wireless controller/chip is soldered to the top of the main circuit board. The antenna lead attaches to a "Chain 0" connector, also on the top of the main circuit board. There is also a place on the board for a "Chain 1" antenna connector, but there is no connector present.
So.... definitely no second antenna, and no second stream. Max speed is 65 mbps.
Also, the wireless chip in the Rev F appeared to be an AR9227. According to the datasheet, it's a PCI version of the AR9287, which is PCI-E.
The datasheet says it supports 2x2, but apparently Verizon and Actiontec chose not to implement it on the F.

That would explain it then. Thanks!
