no real easy way to tell accept to take all antenna off and change them around. Watch the signal on a utility or the wireless status on a PC and you should see the signal drop off when there all detached. There all the same type of antenna so they are not specific for the connection.

I would imagine internally it is still broadcasting, just not going to have very much range.
