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.

if the router has no antennas attached will it still broadcast signals?

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