Yes, it has 3 antennas and it will reach 300Mbps only when operating on 5GHz.

I am not sure what a standard said a thing but when I tried switch all 3, the performances I got are similar. Thus, I don't think it will make any differences in practice.

 

antenna position 

Well, as far as theory is concerned, it should effect more or less of Wifi range (but I have no clue how much it will be). In term of performance, 4965 uses 2 antenna to transmit and 3 as receive one, so I don't think it will effect as long as all three antennas are connected to the card.

 

note: white wire is MAIN (1) , black is AUX (2), gray is 3rd

 

edit: add more info

Thank for the Drawing and picture did yours come stock with them connected that way? I just ask because I just stuck them on and wonder if maybe i shound have done in some spefic way  

 

Just wonder maybe i shound phone ibm and ask if they spefic order for  them

 

I find my singal streagth is good test fine on wireless n 130 meg  just range seem lacking

 

also i find laptop much more pickey in what way it sits like you can turn the laptop just a tin bit and it will  lose networks is seem more direcational ? now

White -- 1
Gray -- 3

Black -- 2

 

This is the way any manufacturers should have done. Yes, it was connected as you saw above from the beginning. When I had tried switching around, I eventually changed them back to the same place.

 

I used to have a range problem as well, but I found out that it was only setting in power saving feature. Now I have much better reception--can see more access points around. However, it's not as many as Atheros 802.11a/b/g could on my other laptop anyway.
