The coverage is supported by 4 x 2 dBi (internal) 4 x 3 dBi (external) antennas. Whilst antennas may assist in range, additional antennas tend to help more with ensuring devices can simultaneously connect to the router. They can help avoid interference, along with helping increase signal strength to devices within the usable range.
