Subject:Removed Aux antenna for bluetooth

> I just unplugged the `aux` antenna on my wifi card and plugged it into the bluetooth card to avoid buying a bluetooth antenna. It works!
> My WiFi signal strength seems ok so far. I wonder how the Aux connection is used? Can it be used to give a direction to the signal?

It's used for signal diversity. Depending how your card handles things you've significantly reduced your effectiveness in multipath situations.

No, it can't be used in any fashion to give direction.
