Do beam-forming devices expect a particular antenna configuration? For instance, do they expect the antennas to be a certain distance from one another? Or parallel to one another? Etc.
I have a beam-forming capable WiFi router located in a utility room. I would like to detach the antennas and add extender cables, so I can run them to various parts of the attic. I am concerned that whatever calculations are necessary to perform beam-forming may include hard-coded values based on the current configuration, e.g., each antenna is placed exactly 2 inches apart, and parallel to one another.
