Figure 1 shows that each of the radios is hard-wired to two external dipole antennas so that they can support antenna diversity.

Although Atheros' technology is used in the separate 802.11a and 802.11b/g radios, Figure 3 shows that Broadcom's BCM4702 Wireless Network Processor handles the FWAG's processing duties. LAN switching and Ethernet are handled by a Broadcom BCM5325 5 port switch/PHY and WAN port, and an Altima AC101 is used for the WAN port.
