Hi, So the AR5416 and later NICs almost all implement MIMO. The only exception is the AR9285 which is a 1x1 with the diversity implementation matching previous (pre-11n) NICs.
Anyway, for MIMO, all the antennas are on by default. So yes, you need to connect all of the antennas. If you want to avoid this, you can override things. I _think_ it's: hint.dev.ath.0.rx_antenna=0x5 hint.dev.ath.0.tx_antenna=0x5 in /boot/loader.conf If it's not that, it's hint.ath.0.xxx .. Then connect antennas to the connectors marked "chain 0" and "chain 2". The boot messages should then say that the RX and TX chainmasks are being set. Otherwise - yes, connect all three!
