I would like to connect an external 2.4GHz antenna to an Intel Edison.
According to Mouser, there are different Edison part numbers for different antenna configurations (internal or external). However, the unit I have has both an on-board antenna and an external U.FL. connector:
I can't find any relevant documentation, so I thought I'd ask here: what are the practicalities of hooking up an external antenna to Intel Edison? Would I need to remove the onboard antenna first? If I don't, what are the downsides of having both antennas connected?
